The Student Guide for Career Analysis. Community Involvement/Career Education: An Experience-based Social Studies Program, Volume I.
Kyle, James; And Others
The guide provides multiple experience-based activities for use by secondary social studies students as they examine occupational possibilities in their communities. The purposes of the materials are to help students evaluate themselves and their value systems, examine occupations, and become aware of the changing philosophy and value of work in our society. Chapter I discusses philosophies of work through investigating the work of Adam Smith, the price of financial success, and the difference between good grades in school and success in the outside world. Students are asked to draft a personal philosophy of work. Chapter II presents newspaper clippings to illustrate various types of work available today. Chapter III presents attitude questionnaires, exercises in self-assessment, lists of occupational clusters, and information on women in the world of work. In chapter IV, values held by a variety of workers are investigated and students are asked to evaluate themselves for a particular job. Topics discussed include interview procedures, women in the work force, job identification facts, the relationship between school subjects and work experience, and observations of the work milieu. The final chapter lists sources of job information, a bibliography of occupational information, sources of career publications, and apprenticeship information. (Author/DB)
