Ohio's Career Continuum: Career Development Component, Orientation Program, Grades 7-8.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Vocational Education.
The career orientation program exposes students to specific jobs and occupations within the 15 U. S. Office of Education job clusters and continues the emphasis on seven, broad, student-centered career development components begun in the K-6 portion of the program. A plan is proposed whereby the 15 clusters are covered in the teachers' area of specialty using three types of learning activity: vicarious, simulated, and hands-on. The particular approach used in the guide emphasizes the performance objectives to be developed by students along with activities and procedures for achieving those objectives. Each unit is presented under a specific job cluster and is subdivided into the categories of: developmental area, overall developmental objective, performance objectives, activities, and procedures and/or resource materials. Appended to the 200-page guide are occupational flow charts (100 pages) which present a breakdown of occupations for each of the 15 job-cluster areas. (AG)
