Maine Curriculum Guide for Career Education K-12.
Maine Univ., Orono. Coll. of Education.
The Maine Curriculum Guide for Career Education's (K-12) task is to provide Maine educators with a model for developing concepts, activities, and resource materials that will infuse Career Education in all Maine schools. Chapter One explains the various aspects of career education, covering its components, definition, rationale, and program implementation through a World of Work model. Chapter Two discusses the roles teachers, counselors, administrators, school board members, the State Department of Educational and Cultural Services, career education coordinators and guidance aides may take to meet the challenge. The remaining 200 pages of the guide, Chapter Three through Six, provide teacher-developed career education activities for career awareness (K-6), career exploration (7-9), and career preparation (10-12) for integration into the classroom curriculum. Each of these sample activities includes a program description, concepts, objectives, activities, resources and materials, and in some cases an evaluation based on classroom use of the unit. Brief descriptions of career-oriented programs in Maine and other States, a 23-page bibliography, and a list of publishers of career related materials are appended. A small brochure, Career Education and Maine, is also included. (BP)
