Career Development Education Planning Model: K-12: Including the Fourth R.
Anchorage Borough School District, AK.
The Alaskan career development education program is a joint school/community systematic approach that provides career awareness in grades K-6, career exploration in grades 7-9, and career preparation in grades 10-12. Some significant reasons for a career development program in Alaskan schools include the very high State unemployment rate, the emergence of native regional and village corporations which require staffing, and the special needs of ethnic minorities. The main areas of the planning model are (1) work, (2) leisure, (3) planning and decision making, (4) home and community involvement, (5) basic studies and occupational preparation, and (6) self-knowledge and interpersonal relationships. A set of concepts, clarifying and defining each area, is further translated into developmental goals, objectives, and activities for Level One (grades K-3), Level Two (grades 4-6), Level Three (grades 7-9), and Level Four (grades 10-12).
