First Steps: Planning a Career Development Activity in Your Classroom.
Northern Illinois Univ., De Kalb. ABLE Model Program.
"Welcome to a movement which focuses on the development of human resources--career education." This theme sets the tone for the publication, whose main purpose is to "help teachers try out career education activities in their own classrooms." A brief discussion of key concepts, examples of activities, and sample forms for quick planning and implementation are aimed at the teacher. Topics treated are: refocusing for career education (refocusing instructional content on people); resources for career education (parents, thank you letters, a business resource questionnaire, getting material and other services, and staff development); theory of practice (interviewing, teaching skills via career education, and evaluation forms); planning models (two developed by the ABLE model program); and analysis of the work of a teacher. The advanced booklet ends with a review of the key ideas advanced by ABLE. It contains charts, illustrations, and useable sample forms. ABLE's capsule philosophy for the development of career education is: A "teacher's imagination is the key instrument of instruction," and this publication stresses that outlook. (NH)
