Preparation for Careers in Transportation. Teachers Guide.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Vocational Education.
One in a series devoted to transportation career education, this guide which is intended for use by teachers in grades 11 and 12, presents a program to prepare students for careers in transportation. Section I gives an introduction to career education and its four phases: career awareness, orientation, exploration, and preparation. Section II stresses the use of resource materials for occupational information on transportation careers. Section III explains the roles of the educational, family, and industrial participants in a career preparation program. Section IV describes five program types in which the program plan can be used (e.g., in-school training, correspondence course, etc.). Section V discusses the program plan and model, emphasizing the use of individualized learning modules. Six objectives are identified for the student: the affirmation of career plans developed in the career exploration program; determination of immediate career preparation; choice of program for career preparation; participation in appropriate learning experiences; refinement of career plan in light of learning experiences; and upon graduation, entrance to a job or postsecondary program. For each objective, activities are suggested both here and in a separate student manual (CE 013 882). Section VI provides a bibliography of resource materials available on transportation. (ELG)
