Affective Approaches to Career Education. Resource Monography No. 12.
Northrup, James C.
A teacher attitude workshop, designed to develop more positive attitudes toward career education and to develop teacher competency in the application of curriculum in the affective domain is described in the monograph, which also provides the background and rationale of the workshop. The workshop was designed by a university laboratory school in Florida. It is essentially affective, and therefore experiential, rather than cognitive, in nature; workshop leaders work with participants on methods of creating an open classroom atmosphere and making the transition to an affective level of teaching. The 10 workshop components are briefly described, and the affective approach is discussed, followed by instructional materials utilized in the workshop, which deal with the process of valuing and value clarification. The importance of developing local leadership to conduct teacher preparation is stressed, and a recommended local leader-preparation program is outlined. The document concludes with a copy of a measurement instrument designed to indicate the attitude change of participating teachers toward career education and the affective approach. (AJ)
