Guide for the Development and Operation of Career Resource Centers in Schools.
Fredrickson, Ronald; And Others
This guide is intended to serve as a basic information source for those seeking to establish a Career Resource Center (CRC) in a school or other community agency. The content is presented in eight chapters. The first one, an introduction, covers the role and benefits of CRC's, while the focus of chapter 2 is on the rationale for career education and CRC's. The third chapter presents program criteria for a CRC within a school setting and examines staffing, location, funding, and working with teachers. Chapter 4 discusses materials for the CRC, including criteria for the section of materials, classification and filing of occupational information, organizing a filing system, and materials to place in the Center. The use of tests and inventories as well as the computer in the CRC are briefly discussed in chapters 5 and 6. Chapter 7 focuses on how the CRC works with the community and includes brief discussions of a speakers bank, field trips, the CRC as a resource for students seeking employment, and adults in the community. A chapter on public relations concludes this booklet. Guidelines for preparing and evaluating occupational materials, a student interest survey form, and a list of audiovisual equipment for the CRC are appended. (EM)
