CHOICE: Career Handbook of Occupational Information by Clusters for Educators.
Information Concepts Inc., Arlington, VA.
CHOICE is an illustrated, 100-page booklet which defines the parameters of the 15 U.S. Office of Education career clusters and provides detailed occupational information on on approximately 50 representative jobs within each cluster. This information includes the job's Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT) code, a short description of functions, and the general educational development, specific vocational preparation, and worker traits required of applicants for that job. Jobs are assigned to clusters according to a comprehensive system based on the job's DOT code. A key to this system, which is included in CHOICE, enables teachers and counselors to locate any job within an appropriate cluster and to expand the range of occupational information available on a cluster as their own particular needs dictate. Finally, suggestions are provided on how students, counselors, teachers, and curriculum developers can use CHOICE to further their own career education efforts. (Author)
