Getting Career Education On!
Frehner, Verl L.
Nevada RCU Report, n26 p1-4 Mar74
A proposed career education program in the Clark County, Nevada, school district is described, based on the following components: career awareness at the elementary school level; greater awareness and investigative and exploratory experiences at the intermediate level; continued exploratory experiences, curriculum for a purpose, and correlated work experiences at the secondary level; and, finally, career directional counseling at departure from high school. In Clark County schools, the two-and-one-half-year program development will provide: awareness of the world of work through the elementary level social science curriculum (curriculum guides are being prepared), greater understanding of various occupations through specially prepared films for sixth and seventh grades, and self-awareness and identification with various careers for eighth grade students through a series of eight special two-day sessions of films and classroom activities. Other plans include profile counseling for intermediate and high school students to aid decision making, work experience correlated with course work for high school, and career directional counseling for students leaving school. A 27-member career education advisory committee has been established for the county. (MDW)
