Models for Career Education in Iowa; Information Centers in Career Education.
Brooks, Clair E.
The career information centers described in the publication were developed for schools participating in the Iowa exemplary project. It is the purpose of the document to suggest solutions to three basic questions: (1) How will prospective materials be identified and obtained? (2) How can available materials best be displayed in order to maximize usage? and (3) What is the nature of the involvement of counselors, administrators, teachers, and students so that the career information center functions optimally? To achieve solutions the document looks in detail at three career information centers: at Sheldon Community School, Humboldt Community School, and Shenandoah Senior High School. Explained in detail are such aspects of the centers as the cost, space, functions, staffing, the major components of a career information center, and program guidelines. The final one-third of the document contains current mailing addresses of over 200 organizations from which free career information materials can be obtained, a list of postsecondary programs in Iowa area community colleges and vocational schools, and ERIC system materials that are available.
