Career Education: An Introduction.
Massey, Romeo; And Others
The introductory guide has been designed to provide Florida teachers, counselors, and administrators with a self-instructional system of inservice training in basic concepts of career education. Materials can be used individually or in a workshop setting. The materials help to acquaint the reader with concepts, misconceptions, reasons for having career education, background of the career education movement, career education elements (self-awareness, educational awareness, career awareness, economic awareness, decision making, beginning competency, employability skills, attitudes and appreciations), State program, career education models, curriculum phases and critical counseling points, occupational clusters, and planning and implementation of a program. After each section, questions and exercises are included to check comprehension and ability to apply concepts; optional readings also have been suggested for amplification and clarification. The final task is a career-centered educational activity to synthesize the reader's professional experience with the career education approach. Individual demographic data, results of included pre/post tests, and an opinion questionnaire are requested of users of this guide as a means of assessment of the efficiency and acceptability of this type of instructional program.
