Career Education. A Counselor's Guide; An Individualized Instructional Unit Designed for Use in In-Service or Preservice Education of Counselors.
Robinson, Mary L.
The individualized instructional unit is intended for use in inservice or preservice education of counselors and was designed to provide a clear, concise overview of career education and to help counselors understand precisely what their support duties are. The unit is divided into five sections, each based on performance objectives. At the completion of the unit, the participant should be able to demonstrate an understanding of: (1) the basic concepts of career education, (2) the rationale for career education, (3) four models for implementation of career education, (4) the structure of the school-based model, and (5) specific activities which the counselor can perform at each educational level to support career education. A suggested supplementary reading list is given at the end of the unit. Other appended materials are a sample survey form, a sample parent letter, and a sample student interview. The unit has been field-tested in three inservice workshops and in several college classes, and was reviewed by recognized career education and guidance and counseling leaders; the material has been revised in accordance with their suggestions.
