The proceedings are a summary of three meetings of the American Institutes for Research (AIR) National Advisory Panel for the Career Education Curriculum Development Project. The two-year federally funded project is directed toward developing a comprehensive, introductory career education curriculum package for grades K-9 and designing alternative delivery systems. At the first meeting in March 1973 (edited transcript included), the panel focused on the definition, goals, and successful implementation of career education. They urged that: (1) career education be defined in broad terms; (2) decision-making skills as well as occupational and other information be taught; (3) career awareness be developed by introducing occupations realistically; (4) leisure, avocational interests, and personal values regarding lifestyle be included; and (5) students be prepared for repeated career decision-making throughout life. Subgroups considered the role of schools, business, industry, labor, and government. The December 1973 panel meeting took place after the completed curriculum was field tested through teacher-training workshops and classroom practicums. Panel concern was related to project progress, the adequacy of the scope and sequence of the curriculum, and implementation. The final October 1974 meeting was directed toward further project progress and steps to maximize project impact. (EA)
