Banathy, Bela H.; Studebaker, Diana, P.
Intended for use by teachers, administrators, community people, and others involved in or considering involvement in the Native American Career Education (NACE) program, this guide serves as an introduction, overview, and resource for the junior high school program as a whole. There are eight chapters. In chapter 1, career education as a discipline in American education and the theoretical bases of the NACE program are discussed. Chapter 2 presents program goals and defines the concepts of career awareness, orientation, and exploration. Chapter 3 summarizes the content of the instructional units; discusses unifying concepts such as cultural relevance and career clusters; and describes sequencing alternatives and unit format. Chapter 4 presents information on traditional Indian teaching methods, the Indian as learner, and appropriate instructional strategies. In chapter 5 various implementation strategies are described, and problems of scheduling, using available space, and finding and using additional resources are considered. Chapter 6 discusses how to adapt the program to a given geographical and cultural setting and how to make use of community resources. Chapter 7 discusses the program as model. Chapter 8 presents a bibliography of basic resources for use with the program. The guide also contains a reference list, a teacher orientation workshop outline, and a sample of a community information booklet. (Each of the twelve instructional units is available separately.)
