Project CARE--Career Awareness Through Realistic Experience: Career Education in Warren Consolidated Schools.
Turner, B. Carol, Ed.
Career education can be the vehicle through which students will be better equipped to face life outside of the educational system. Comprehensive career education programs are divided into phases: self-awareness and career awareness, career exploration, and preparation for job placement. Programs begin at the kindergarten level and extend through adult and continuing education; the phases are recycled according to individual needs and wants. The long-range goal is economic independence and personal satisfaction for the individual as he assumes his various roles in life. In the Warren program, personnel needs were surveyed, and meetings to plan objectives for students and staff were held. Instructional materials were developed according to eight guidelines and followed the USOE occupational clusters division. The purpose of each unit of instruction at each grade level was specified, and, pending official publication of external evaluators, it is felt program objectives were accomplished. The 125 pages of appendixes contain related material: objectives, forms, surveys, and three examples of instructional units (Family Members as Producers and Consumers, 16 pages; Occupations in National Resources, 55 pages, and Occupations in the Stock Market, 30 pages).
