Tips for Infusing Career Education in the Curriculum.
Taylor, Bob L.; And Others
This publication defines the role of career education in the social studies. Society has always been concerned that youth be adequately trained in the crafts and skills that will allow the society to maintain itself. Defined today, career education is an educational process, taking place both in and out of school, by which all persons at all levels, regardless of age, race, sex, or economic status, have the opportunities to gain the experience and knowledge necessary to assure them satisfying life roles. The paper begins with a brief history of and rationale for infusing career education in the social studies. The second chapter describes the infusion process and shows educators how to develop social studies lessons, activities, and units which have career education components infused into the content. The next chapter presents four complete units which were developed using the curriculum infusion model. The activities demonstrate the infusion model for elementary, middle, and high school curricula. The last chapter presents a rationale and ideas for involving the community in career education programs. (Author/JR)
