Career Development Guides: Guidance Career Unit.
The guide contains a guidance unit for career development designed to be a part of a secondary school career English course and a social studies unit of study in which the guidance counselor team-teaches with the classroom teacher. The guidance unit is designed to last three to four weeks and is composed of three basic elements: self awareness, occupational awareness, and educational awareness. The social studies component aims at providing students with a certain knowledge of themselves and their own occupational preferences and potential through a series of discussions, readings, games, exercises, tests, and analyses of occupational clusters. The English component aims at developing reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills valuable to career education. The outline format of the presentation of the three basic elements listed above is: objective, activities, and evaluation procedure. Three pages of resources list sources for occupational and college information, and a five-page appendix provides an outline for a student career experience study. (JR)
