Career Education Handbook. Career Development Guides.
The handbook is designed to introduce administrative staff to the career education concept and to demonstrate the integration of career education-related learning concepts (self-awareness, occupational awareness, and educational awareness) into the major content-area subjects traditionally taught. The introduction discusses what career education is, why it is needed, and why it is not merely a passing fad. A discussion of planning the program covers program coordination, illustrates the model of the career conscious individual, and lists the program's general objectives at the elementary, middle, and secondary school levels. A lengthy enumeration of behavioral objectives lists the career, self, and educational objectives at the kindergarten--primary, intermediate, middle school--junior high, and junior high--senior high levels. A one-page list of the steps for integrating career education ideas into the curriculum is provided, along with a sample integrated unit plan and several blank worksheets. A two-page resource list of curriculum guides is also included. (JR)
