Models for Career Education in Iowa: Career Education and the World of Work.
Brooks, Clair E.
The document is part of a series that reports the findings and accomplishments of the Models for Career Education in Iowa project which was initiated to research, define, and describe an emerging concept of career education and to suggest possible approaches for implementation in primary and secondary education. The central purpose of the document is to promulgate and clarify the use of the world of work concept. Part 1 briefly discusses education's treatment of the world of work in the past, which has shown an increasing emphasis on the integration of education and work. Part 2 focuses its attention on current and emerging trends in the world of work, including attitudes to work, the impact of occupational trends, and population changes in terms of age and expectation. The final section deals with the role of the world of work in the educational program through a model for career development which has as its two basic concepts self and world of work. For the purpose of inclusion in a school curriculum, career development objectives using these two concepts are classified according to the developmental phases of the model: awareness (primary); accommodation (intermediate); exploration (junior high); and preparation-exploration (high school).
