The exploratory course in career education for grades 8 and 9 is designed to directly involve the student in an investigation and evaluation of information about career opportunities, societal needs, and his personal relationship to the world of work. The purpose of this experience-centered course is to stimulate creative individualism which will lead to better decision-making based on self-appraisal and awareness of occupational opportunities. The units of study include learning activities to help the student gain self-knowledge, understand the role of the individual in the economic system, and relate his studies to occupational planning. He also explores in depth occupations involving work with data, people and animals, and objects and materials. Each of the 10 units is focused on appropriate behavioral objectives. Half of the document consists of appended materials including lists of resources and techniques, sample forms and letters, a personal data questionnaire, vocational interest and self-evaluation surveys, instructional materials, and useful information related to occupational research and teaching.
