Spanning grades 10-12, the curriculum guide focuses on the preparation phase of career education and attempts to provide the student with opportunities to learn a salable skill or prepare for further education. The career education concept is fused into each academic as well as skill area. The first section presents vocational course offerings in: agricultural mechanics, automotive mechanics, building trades, industrial drafting, industrial wiring, intensive business training, metal trades, and cooperative vocational education. The second section displays career oriented academic course offerings in: art, driver education, English, foreign languages, guidance, health and physical education, home economics, industrial arts, mathematics, music, science, and social studies. An explanation of the scope, sequence, procedure, and major objectives is given for each skill area and sample instructional guides accompany each skill area. The guides contain a table of contents, course description, objectives, information sheets, assignment sheets, and job sheets. Additional instructional materials are listed at the end of each example unit. The appendix provides an annotated multimedia resource directory of career guidance materials. (MW)
