Orientation to Career Education. An Individual Approach.
Arrowsmith, Sue; Cobb, Pat
The purpose of the instructional module is to provide educators with an orientation to career education--its goals, objectives, and rationale. The material is presented in an individualized instructional format, consisting of a pretest and four units. Completion of the units in sequence assures a logical presentation of these introductory materials to career education. The introduction provides a general overview and includes a pretest for those who wish to identify the sections with which they are familiar and those that need review. Unit 1 presents a discussion of conditions in society to which career education can respond. Unit 2 identifies and describes four national models for career education. The third unit discusses the goals of the school-based comprehensive career education model and describes the methods of development and implementation. Unit 4 describes the function of the school-based career education components: staff development, community relations, curriculum development, guidance and placement, support systems, and evaluation. Each unit includes a goal statement, introduction, performance objective, learning activities, study exercises and answers, and a posttest. A glossary defines terms that are unique to career education models and to the materials presented in the module. (Author/NJ)
