An Introduction to Career Education.
Stevenson, John B.
Offering an overview of the development of the career education concept, its philosophy, and its implementation in existing programs, the document traces the history of career education movements, defines the term "career education," and provides a basis for an understanding of the comprehensive nature and scope of career education. It discusses a variety of career education models, career development opportunities in terms of crisis and developmental solutions, and the integration of career development programs into existing systems. A comprehensive career education model within the framework of total services delivery and guidelines for its implementation are presented. A unit on coordinating guidance and counseling activities provides examples of various approaches and systems. Over 100 pages of appendixes offer: (1) excerpts from affirmative action legislation; (2) the Sheboygan, Oregon, and Iowa models; (3) Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT) occupational categories and occupational divisions; (4) DOT description: data, people, and things; (5) horizontal display of career development concepts; (6) example of concept expansion; (7) career education for career development; (8) rationale and counselor functions; and (9) the role of the local vocational education coordinator. A glossary, bibliography, and index conclude the volume. (MW)
