Career Education and the Teaching/Learning Process.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
Major changes are involved in the teaching/learning process in career education and the classroom teacher is of key importance. Emphasis must be placed on: (1) the rationale for career education in the classroom; (2) the use of career implications of subject matter as motivational devices; (3) implications of expanding the parameters of the teaching/learning process; and (4) implications of career education for the philosophy of teaching. To successfully prepare students for future careers, the two major objectives are: (1) to increase relationships between education and work and the ability of individuals to understand and capitalize on these relationships; and (2) to increase the personal meaning and meaningfulness of work in the total lifestyle of each individual. Both of these objectives call for the integration of the classroom and the community and for the development of educational strategies for reducing student alienation. Career education urges student accomplishment and brings relevance to the classroom experience. The working relationship between the teacher, student and resource persons who supplement the classroom material are of utmost importance. The development of the students' self-concepts and the teacher's interest in students' career aspirations are vital for effective teaching. (Author/JB)
