Guideline of Career Development Activities (Samples): A Statewide Program in Developmental Vocational Guidance (K-12) and Occupational Preparation for the Changing World of Work.
North Dakota State Board for Vocational Education, Bismarck.
The document is a sampling of lesson plans for career education in secondary academic subject areas, produced by North Dakota school personnel with the State board, for a vocational education exemplary project. It is a preliminary draft compiled for field-testing. Project objectives include: (1) preparing youth to cope with continued change in the world of work, (2) acquainting students with major occupational fields, (3) helping students assess themselves, and (4) helping students acquire necessary job information. Other objectives stress attitudes, realism, planning, and educational relevance. Individual lessons are presented in the areas of English, mathematics, biology, art, economics, office education, social studies, foreign language, and guidance. Several in-depth lessons are presented for English classes (comprising more than half the document); there is one lesson outlined for each of the other disciplines. Each lesson plan includes broad and specific objectives, a list of activities, a teaching guide entitled "Suggested Technique," and a list of resource materials. There is special emphasis in the English lessons on self-awareness, examination of attitudes and beliefs and their sources in society and in the family, and rational decision-making. Lessons in the other subject areas concentrate on occupational information, job skills, and self-evaluation. (AJ)
