Career Preparation: Suggestions for Teachers.
The last of five documents developed as an outgrowth of funded programs for career education in Kentucky, the handbook for high school teachers involved in career education includes an overview, startegy for curriculum development, strategies for teaching, and sample units and plans. It is not a curriculum guide or comprehensive outline but rather practical suggestions for the classroom teacher. The 15 occupational clusters are listed and broadly defined. Elaborating on the preparation stage of career development and the integration of subject matter areas and career education at the high school level, the following teaching techniques are outlined: (1) the interview, (2) research, (3) class meetings, (4) field trips, and (5) the use of specialists. Guidelines to assist the teacher in unit planning deal with content development, resources, student performance, and student evaluation. Six facets of unit design for all grade levels are presented: (1) visibility, (2) the person as a resource, (3) academic values, (4) classroom management, (5) parent communication, and (6) the finished product. Occupations related to interest and ability in certain subject areas are listed. Concluding the document are two sample units that illustrate the proposed methodology. (MW)
