Career Exploration for Elementary Children: A Curriculum Model.
Bailey, Larry J.
The Career Exploration for Elementary Children (CEC) project is a 3-year curriculum development effort begun in 1972 at the Perrysburgh, Ohio, Elm Street Elementary School. The three major desired outcomes of the project are: (1) development of a curriculum model for career exploration at the elementary school level, (2) the development of an instructional system to implement the curriculum model, and (3) the evaluation of the instructional system materials and outcomes. The CEC project is involved in achieving career development behaviors at the K-6 levels primarily within the following three domains: (1) concepts of self, (2) economic-occupational and educational concepts and skills, and (3) work values and attitudes. Brief descriptions of the awareness and accommodation stages follow. A basic characteristic of the CEC project is its relevance on activity-based experiences to achieve desired behavioral outcomes. The CEC developed a Curricular Language which is discussed in detail in Appendix A. The CEC staff then established guidelines in the form of eight principles of career development to be used in elementary career education. Also included is a 34-item bibliography. (BP)
