Career Education: A Differentiated Approach to Improvement of Instruction.
Delaware State Dept. of Public Instruction, Dover.
The publication is intended to convey a perspective on career education, emphasizing recognized instructional organization, processes and procedures, and concerns. The first chapter discusses the career education concept generally, as an instrument for curricular analysis and as a bridge between the classroom and the community. The second chapter presents a philosophical framework and a curricular design for success oriented learning, and the third chapter delineates the goals and objectives, characteristics, and problems and concerns related to individualization of instruction. Organizing for successful instruction is the topic of the fourth chapter, which presents overviews of team teaching, large and small group instruction, independent study, flexible scheduling, and evaluation. Chapter 5 provides a curricular framework for the career development sequence of career education (focusing on career exploration), in which subject areas are coordainted through the occupational cluster concept and goals are structured by reference to eight skills categories. Chapter 5 also summarizes four phases of the career development sequence: career awareness, career orientation, career exploration, and early career preparation. Chapter 6 provides a management design for the systematic development and implementation of the career exploration phase; steps are outlined for system planning and management, design analysis and development, and implementation and assessment.
