Louisiana Career Education Goals and Objectives.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge. Div. of Instructional Services.
The document presents an overview and rationale for implementing career education programs in Louisiana and provides a loose structure wherein parishes can develop programs suited to their needs. Specific career education goals and objectives that were considered to be desirable for students to attain were identified and evaluated in a series of regional conferences. A description of the career education goals and objectives and suggested activities are presented separately for the following levels: (1) lower elementary students (age nine), with emphasis on self-awareness and motivation, (2) junior high school students (age 13), the career exploration stage when students begin to examine job opportunities available within the 15 job clusters, and (3) senior high school students (age 17), presenting career and occupational development objectives based on practical training oriented acquiring job entry skills for employment or advanced study and training. At each level, student objectives and goals focus on: (1) possession of positive attitudes toward self, others, and work; (2) awareness and practice of effective work habits; (3) possession of basic skills useful in careers; and (4) preparation for making career decisions. Appended materials include information on the various activities held to formulate these goals and objectives. (Author/EC)
