The exemplary project to develop models for career education was conducted in nine Iowa schools selected for their scattered locations and for representing rural, suburban, and metropolitan communities of Iowa. Awareness of self and of the world of work at the primary level was followed by exploration of occupations in junior high school and further orientation and exploration in senior high school, along with vocational preparation for some students. Procedures for integrating and implementing the career development concept in the school curriculum are described. This is accomplished by defining and conceptualizing career education in the school structure and curriculum, by formulating and integrating objectives into the current course of study, and by developing instructional activities through inservice programs with strong administrative commitment and support. Provided are examples illustrating the objectives, activities, resources, and evaluation techniques for specific subject areas at various grade levels: kindergarten, fourth, sixth, and high school. A timetable for integrating the career development concept into the school curriculum concludes the document. (BP)
