A Design for Career Education.
Montgomery County Public Schools, Rockville, MD.
The design is a broad framework for career education which was prepared for curricular and instructional planning. The rationale, philosophy, goals, and objectives of career education are included. Also discussed in the relationship between career education and vocational education. The goal of career development as described provided the general direction from which the design was derived. The program involves students from kindergarten through grade 12 and has four overlapping phases in three grade bands: career awareness and orientation in kindergarten through grade six, career orientation and exploration in grades seven through nine, and career exploration and specialization in grades 10 through 12 and beyond. All four phases are concerned with objectives in the following categories: concepts of self, concepts and skills (in the use of language, mathematics, scientific methods, and social sciences), sense of responsibility and initiative, information processing skills, interpersonal relationships, and work attitudes and values. The three essential, interdependent components of the program, guidance, content, and refocus (the blending of subject area and career education objectives) are briefly described. General content and student outcomes are presented for the programs phases in each of the three grade bands. Appended are two charts which summarize the curriculum design. (Author/MS)
