Allen, Alveta; And Others
Several intermediate performance objectives and corresponding criterion measures are listed for each of six terminal objectives for a personal career orientation course for seventh grade students. This 6- to 9-week course is designed to acquaint the student with personal qualities and characteristics necessary for success in the world of work. Consideration is given to the need for a positive attitude toward the dignity, worth, and satisfaction of work, and the dignity and value of all legitimate occupational pursuits. Emphasis is placed on means of determining one's interests and goals in life, evaluating these, and forming a plan to develop improved self-concept, relations with others, management of resources, personal nutrition, grooming, dress, and concern for becoming employable. Opportunities are given for critical thinking, problem-solving, and decisionmaking. A 50-item curriculum test (diagnostic) precedes the objectives. (This manual and 54 others were developed for various secondary level vocational courses using the System Approach for Education (SAFE) guidelines.) (HD)
