Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing.; Michigan State Board of Education, Lansing.
This monograph discusses the developmental stages of career education in Michigan, and describes eight local-level career education projects in the state. Some of the specific programs in operation in Michigan include: (1) a placement project which finds jobs for students and graduates of a vo-tec center; (2) a career-oriented curriculum project which seeks to incorporate career development concepts into the K-12 curriculum, (3) a goal process model where teachers are instructed in the process of building career education units for their instructional area; (4) a career education project where the basic goals are to influence teacher attitudes toward career education through inservice training, and to develop, field test and evaluate materials for classroom use; (5) Project CAST--Career Achievement Skills Training--which teaches students a process by which they can make good decisions as to what they will do with their lives; and (6) Project CARE--Career Awareness through Related Experiences--where students (K-Adult) learn first-hand the relationships between their school experiences and the world outside.
