The first section of the career guidance handbook provides a brief introduction to the need for career guidance, explains the eight elements and outcomes of career education in the Alabama Career Education Curriculum Model (self-awareness--self-identity, educational awareness--educational identity, career awareness--career identity, economic awareness--economic understanding, decision making--career decisions, beginning competency--employment skills, employability skills--career placement, and attitudes and appreciations--self/social fulfillment), and discusses the four major constituents of the career guidance process: developing self-awareness, acquiring decision-making skills, developing environmental understanding and awareness, and relating to the world of work. Section two discusses the components of the career guidance program (curriculum base, pupil data system, information system, work observation and experience, group and individual counseling, educational and occupational placement, and research and evaluation), identifies the responsibilities of guidance specialists, teachers, principals, parents, students, employers, and other community members in career guidance, and outlines procedures for evaluating career guidance programs. A three-page annotated bibliography is included. (JR)
