Life Career Development: A K-12 Career Education Conceptual Model Designed as a Guide for Teachers, Administrators, and Counselors.
Baltimore County Board of Education, Towson, MD.
The guide was designed to assist teachers in infusing career education concepts into the curriculum. Opening sections present information on using the guide, suggested steps for infusion, definitions, characteristics, and outcome goals of career education. The framework on which the guide is based was developed around six major concepts involving: the development and clarification of attitudes toward the concept of work, decision-making skills, the development of an awareness of self, career planning, the development of skills and competencies, and social, economic and cultural conditions. These major concepts, related sub-concepts, and supporting factors are listed in another section. Each major concept with its accompanying subconcepts is introduced at one of three educational levels (elementary, junior high/middle school, or senior high school). Suggested grade level objectives and related strategies for implementation (learning activities) corresponding to the concepts and subconcepts are contained in separate sections for each of the three educational levels. Appended material includes: a three-page selected bibliography, information on occupational clusters, a second grade teaching unit, two examples of instructional materials, and a sample plan and materials for integrating career education into an introductory business course.
