Career Education Resource Notebook.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore. Div. of Instruction.
The resource guide offers a comprehensive description of the career education program in Maryland, from pre-school to adult, which could be adapted to programs in other States. It describes in detail the characteristics, components, and goals of career education. The five components: the family; career development; the classroom teacher; vocational skill development; and the community-at-large, are examined, with explanations of each one's role in the career education process, and suggestions for ways of increasing each one's input into that process. Names and addresses of resource persons in the Maryland school system are included for each component. The second section of the guide deals with the special career needs of girls and women and of handicapped persons. The position and potential of these groups in the work force is discussed, and suggestions for the career education of such groups, along with separate specialized bibliographies, are included in this section. A concluding section deals with the development and evaluation of career education programs and explains specific standards which would be useful to the administrators of such programs. A concluding 15-page bibliography covers: career education bibliographies; books, periodicals, newsletters; and an annotated section on curriculum, program, and other resources. (JR)
