Career Exploration, Level 2. Career-Centered Curriculum for Vocational Complexes in Mississippi.
Mississippi State Dept. of Education, Jackson. Div. of Vocational and Technical Education.; Jones County School District, Laurel, MS.
Intended for the ninth grade, the level 2 career exploration curriculum guide focuses more closely on occupational clusters that have been selected by the student on the basis of interests, aptitudes, and abilities. Orientation to decision making acquaints the student with factors to consider when making more definite career choices. Units based on instructional goals include: (1) increased self-awareness, (2) educational and career planning, (3) indepth study of an occupational interest, (4) simulated work experiences, and (5) information regarding employability skills. Instructional objectives for each unit are written in behavioral terms; learning experiences and resources are directly related to objectives. Resource guides accompany each unit and include transparencies, cassette tapes, manuals, and books. Making up a significant portion of the document, the appendix offers: (1) 72 pages of teaching aids, including a glossary, questionnaires, checklists, sample forms, and supplementary teaching materials; (2) an individualized learning package for consumer education; and (3) an annotated multimedia resource directory of career guidance materials.
