Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem. Career and Vocational Education Section.
Career education at the elementary level in Oregon focuses on career awareness and career exploration. At the secondary level a higher degree of experiences is developed in career exploration, which is concerned with self-understanding, occupational exploration, and career information. Career exploration provides experiences in career decision making, cluster orientation, cluster exploration, exploratory work experience, and guidance services. The guidelines offer specific student outcomes for an exploratory career education program for grades 7-10. Subject areas which can provide direct career exploration experiences include industrial arts, home economics, business education, social studies, science/health, and economics. The relation of these areas to various occupations are charted. Suggestions for teaching procedures which include career exploration activities are offered for the following subjects: science, math, social studies, English, industrial arts, homemaking, art, music, physical education, and health. Ways of implementing exploratory activities in small schools are discussed. (EC)
