Career Education Curriculum Guide.
Keiser, Jerry C., Ed.; Wampler, Elizabeth C., Ed.
Indiana's goal for education is that every young person leaving or completing his school program should be ready for higher education or have a salable skill for entering useful and rewarding employment. This concept has been embodied within the Career Education Curriculum Guide and the State Career Education Model. The guide has derived, from the career education model, its four main levels: (1) introduction, for K through 5 (awareness of self and respect for the world of work); (2) exploration, for 6 through 8 (exploratory experiences are important in the process of career development); (3) investigation, for 9 through 10 (career cluster investigation is essential to the developmental process), and (4) experience, for 11 through 12 (career preparation is achieved through successful educational and training experience). Each unit is divided by grade level, subject area, and concept cluster with an outline of appropriate learning objectives, learning experiences, and materials and resources. The second half of the document (168 pages) contains 12 appendixes suggesting activities, books and pamphlets, bulletin board ideas, career club information, commercial materials, films and filmstrips, forms, games, inexpensive sources of career information, test information, a directory of publishers, and a two-page bibliography.
