Career Education Project: Resource and Instructional Manual for the Implementation of a Model Career Guidance Curriculum Unit.
Pastrana, Ronald R.
The guide, part of a career education project for elementary and secondary education, is designed for use by counselors with high school students. The introductory remarks discuss the background of the program which was proposed to develop a general course of study for students in career education. Developed for use in grades 10-12, the model unit, Self-Study and Career Planning, utilizes the group situation to initiate decision-making skills, self-understanding and problem-solving techniques, and the concept of the student-to-student advisor system that encourages peer interaction between students. There is a discussion of career education, guidance and the counselor, the development of the unit, and a visual representation of the model unit. Each lesson is organized according to topic, grade level, time allotment, objectives, preparation, key points, learning activities, and teaching strategies. The 10 topics, suggested for a 15-week period, cover the areas of: an introduction, self-identification, personal interests, personal values, aptitudes, problem-solving techniques, decision-making, using career information and materials, and career planning. A glossary of career education terms and student handouts and worksheets coordinated with the lessons are appended. A bibliography completes the document. (JB)
