Models, Elements and Characteristics of Career Education.
Jesser, David L.; Vanier, Byron
Prepared as part of the Career Education Project of the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), the paper investigates instructional models for career education. The first section of the document is devoted to a comparison of the characteristics of the U. S. Office of Education (USOE) model and a selection of 12 State Models. The USOE model is based on the three stage approach to career education: awareness, exploration, and preparation stages, and the State models all offer similar approaches and are presented in brief summary statements with illustrative diagrams. The final section offers a detailed treatment of four models developed by the USOE to facilitate career education goals: (1) the school-based career education model, (2) the employer-based career education model, (3) the home/community-based career education model, and (4) a rural residential model. Five necessary components are needed to facilitate the integration of career education into the educational system: (1) the classroom teacher, (2) vocational skill training, (3) career development, (4) the home and family, and (5) the working community.
