Ohio State's Architecture for a Comprehensive Career Education.
Lipe, Dewey
The development of the largest school-based career education model program, by the Center for Vocational Education (CVE), went through several stages. The three levels of career awareness, career exploration, and vocational preparation became an integral part of the Comprehensive Career Education Model (CCEM) at an early stage. Eight elements were derived from eight statements which defined areas considered to be essential in career education. CVE, in cooperation with six school districts, designed and prepared some 133 K-12 career education curriculum units, 45 of which have been revised and field tested by CVE. Sixtyone other units are being revised and field tested by the American Institutes for Research (AIR). The entire set of units was intended to be illustrative rather than comprehensive. The thrust of the AIR project has been for impact. Three groups, publishers, school administrators, and teachers, were surveyed to determine their needs and goals and their reactions to the current form of the units. The units were then analyzed and their content coded on a lesson-by-lesson basis. These data will be used in revision to prevent redundancy and assume that a coherent career education program will evolve from the revision process. Further revision and field testing will be followed by arrangements for commercial publication. (Author/SA)
