Improving Occupational Exploration and Career Planning Through the Development and Utilization of Learner Directed Career Development Resources. Final Report.
Walz, Garry R.; And Others
Concerned with comprehensive career development and career guidance programs for grades K-14, the major emphases of this project were: (1) identifying major needs of and gaps in existing career development resources, (2) developing a series of learner directed multimedia career development modules, (3) designing and conducting a series of workshop presentations on the use of career development modules for guidance personnel, and (4) preparing counselors to use the new career development resources in developing comprehensive career development programs. A substantial portion of the document consists of seven complete career development modules used in school systems to actively help in students' career planning and decision making: (1) Value Exploration and Clarification, (2) Learning About Self, (3) Goal Setting and Planning for Oneself, (4) Broadening Career Perspectives, (5) Coping with Environmental Barriers, (6) Using Resources in Effective Career Planning and (7) Working More Effectively and Efficiently. Each module, used successfully at the ninth grade level, has been subjected to field testing. A review of present use, suggestions for implementation, and consideration of the future development of career modules are explored in the final chapter. A guide to career games, simulations, assessment measures, and a 27-page annotated bibliography are offered. (MW)
