A Model to Implement Career Education.
Robbinsdale Independent School District 281, Minn.
A brief discussion of a school/life model of career development, designed to provide for elimination of curriculum overlap, consistent evolution and integration of the career education concept, and understanding and communication with participating staff, is presented in this document. Eight elements are listed representing the main factors considered in theories of career development and education: (1) Self awareness, (2) educational awareness, (3) career awareness, (4) economic awareness, (5) decisionmaking, (6) competency/skill awareness, (7) employment skills, and (8) attitudes and appreciations. The following four areas designed as "clusters" are also contained as a guide for using the world of work with the eight elements: Community clusters (e.g., business/manufacturing/construction); USOE 15 occupational clusters; subject matter clustering (math, science, social studies, etc.); and personal clustering (emphasizes the individual's capacities, interests, and opportunities). Appendixes comprise the major portion of this manual. "Career Education: A Practical Approach," by C. Helling, is appended to add dimension to the model overview. Additional appendixes include basic tenets of career education, definitions of the eight career education elements, and clustering concept examples. (BL)
