Models for Career Education in Iowa: A Philosophy for Career Education.
Iowa State Univ. of Science and Technology, Ames. Dept. of Agricultural Education.
An exemplary project, Models for Career Education in Iowa, was initiated to research, define, and describe an emerging concept of career education. The philosophy of career education places emphasis on self-identify development and the basic concept of world-of-work. The curriculum content of career education includes planned and spontaneous educational experiences oriented towards adding relevancy to the learning process. This calls for educational process that meets the needs of the learner and results in specific attention being given to career planning. The teacher's role is enhanced by expanding the educational environment to include cultural, social, economic, and occupational situations. The model for career development is also presented in diagram form, showing its basis in two concepts, self and world-of-work. These are shown interacting through the four phases of formal education: awareness, accommodation, exploration, and presentation-exploration, leading ultimately to occupational entry. A definition of terms relevant to the philosophy of career education is given. (Author/EC)
