Lewis-Clark State Coll., Lewiston, ID.; Idaho State Dept. of Education, Boise.
The Career Development guide for teacher use in Grade 9 was developed and evaluated with the help of classroom teachers in Idaho in response to the need for additional emphasis on career awareness and exploration and for opportunities for career planning. It is intended as a basic core and focuses on both the personal and world of work aspects of career development. The document opens with an 8-page teacher's quide explaining the course outline, with suggestions for presenting and supplementing the basic core and a suggested sequence of lessons for integrating the three components. The body of the document contains lesson plans in the three component areas: self understanding (52 lessons focusing on economic, social, and psychological reasons for work, a study of general personality traits with reference to job selection and success on the job, and lifestyles); occupational information (46 lessons focusing on types of occupation, employment qualifications, and career exploration); and implementing career plans (24 lessons focusing on occupational choice, planning for employment or further education, and obtaining and keeping a job). Each lesson guide includes aims and objectives, procedures and activities, and resources and references. Supplementary material and detailed lists of resource materials and supplies are appended.
