Career Education: The Need and an Approach Toward Implementation.
Cummings, Kenneth
The booklet provides a general guide for the implementation of career education, presenting a sample inservice teacher course of study and a guidance career education course for grades 9-12. Part 1 deals with program implementation, discusses books, films, and statistical data useful in demonstrating to school superintendents and boards of education the need for career education, and suggests procedures for inaugurating a teacher inservice program in career education. Part 2 discusses society's concern with career fulfillment and the potential of career education for overcoming the educational system's institutional biases against nonacademic education and for explaining the nature of man's existence in the world of work. The section also analyzes manpower needs nationally, in New York State, and in Dutchess County. Part 3 presents a teacher inservice course of study which discusses in detail the rationale for career education, lesson design and development, resources and materials, and includes an appendix for inservice evaluation with sample forms. Part 4 presents a secondary level guidance career education course outline which focuses on viewing and discussing films and a variety of written and oral exercises geared toward career development, especially its humanistic elements. Instructional questionnaires materials and additional resources are appended. (JR)
