The curriculum guide is based on the Career Conscious Individual Career Education Model, designed to create career consciousness in students at all educational levels; to help them develop necessary life competencies, attitudes, and values; to assist them in visualizing possible careers; and to analyze and relate these roles to their present situations. Utilizing language arts and social studies curricula, with several science, communication skills, home economics, and industrial arts lessons, the units center on the model's four interrelated domains: self-knowledge and interpersonal skills, knowledge of work and leisure worlds, career planning knowledge and skills, and basic studies and occupational preparation. Objectives are outlined for grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-8 for both regular and special education. For grades 6-8, the goals involve: self-analysis; positive self-concept; use of communication skills; cooperation; understanding of environmental factors; positive attitudes and behavior; and knowledge of job competencies, of the career development process, of responsibilities of actions and decisions, of educational preparation, of necessary skills, and of communities and job locations. The main portion of the document (50 pages) presents activities and outcomes for the grades 6-8 organized under domain, pertinent goal, and specific objectives. (JB)
