Career Development for the Upper Grades.
Chicago Board of Education, IL.
Developed by the Chicago public schools in coordination with State and local departments of vocational education, the document is the last in a series of three curriculum guides. Intended for use at the junior high school level, its aim is to provide two types of guidance services: counseling for self-understanding and personal development, and a program of broad, general occupational information intended to serve as a foundation for later career decisions. The program emphasizes the contribution of group guidance to the total guidance program and in the classroom; group guidance techniques and the development of a guidance unit plan are discussed. All three career development guides in the series--primary, intermediate, and upper levels--are organized around the same conceptual framework: learning to know oneself, developing habits and relationships, learning about opportunities, and making and carrying out plans. Each unit specifies general unit goals, specific behavioral objectives, and suggestions for classroom activities. Concluding each unit is a detailed bibliography of resource materials, including books, kits, audiovisual materials, and other instructional aids. (MW)
