Career Education and the Rural School Curriculum.
Peters, Richard O.
New Hampshire Supervisory School Union 58--Experimental Schools project (Groveton, New Hampshire) has developed a rural schools oriented career education program for grades K-12, which incorporates the total community. The program focuses on three major themes: (1) Self Awareness--Who Am I? (kindergarten and grade 1), (2) Awareness of Community Workers (grades 1-3), and (3) Awareness of the World of Work (grades 3-12). In grades 3-6, emphasis is on student awareness of the world of work, while in grades 7-8 exposure to the world of work is through career guidance seminars, observational activities, and elective mini-courses. In grades 9-12, students are involved in elective mini-courses, career exploration seminars, and worksite placement. Teachers write their own career awareness lessons with assistance from the career/vocational education coordinator and then test them in their classrooms and revise them before distribution to other teachers. The Cornell Career Awareness Inventory and the Career Maturity Inventory are used to determine levels of career awareness and vocational maturity. An integral part of program development is direct teacher involvement in the process through in-service training. (EA)
