Career Exploration Program. Curriculum Guide [Grades 9-10]: A Workshop Report.
Essex, Martin W.
The document is a collection of materials related to the development of a State career education continuum for Ohio, specifically the development of resources for offering vicarious, simulated, or hands-on career exploration experiences to ninth and tenth graders within a unified theoretical framework. Introduced by general discussions of philosophy and hopes for the State program, the document includes flow charts, a 24-page application of the model program to a hypothetical school situation, a 40-page resource list cross-referenced to occupational areas, and an 8-page list of job titles in occupational areas, citing information sources for students. Three pages of general program recommendations are offered. Among the appendixes, 111 pages of sample occupational simulations are provided for vocational education and for subject disciplines. The format provides concepts and teaching methods, sometimes including problems and answers. Eight-eight pages of curriculum suggestions are devoted to six basic personal developmental areas: self and environemnt, economics, world of work, education and training, employability and work adjustment skills, and decision making. The format provides developmental, program, and behavioral objectives, and broadly indicates program implementation and relevant teaching activities. Various documents related to administrator and teacher workshops are also appended. (AJ)
