K-12 Classroom Teachers and Career Education: The Beautiful People. Monographs on Career Education.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
The role and function of K-12 classroom teachers in career education and the evolving concept of career education are described in this monograph through reporting the thoughts and actions of 49 teacher participants in four career education miniconferences. The contents of this report are organized around six topics: (1) Career education and instruction, (2) the process of career education, (3) the substance of career education, (4) career education, the teacher, and the broader community, (5) perceived benefits of career education, and (6) prospects for career education and the classroom teacher. Critical issues are identified and discussed which other professional classroom teachers must resolve for themselves as they make decisions concerning career education. Responses by conference participants to the question, "What keeps me going in career education?" and a directory of participants are appended. (TA)
