Careers Exploration in the Junior High School. Counselors' and Teachers' Guides.
Columbus Public Schools, OH. Div. of Special Services.
These career exploration guides offer junior high school counselors and teachers grade level programs for helping students understand and explore career alternatives, as well as develop the insights and individual initiative needed for realistic vocational goals. The program content deals with interests, abilities, job levels and fields, working conditions, preparation, chances for advancement, security, physical requirements and other variables relevant to the study of vocations. Of the four guides, one guide pertains to the counselor's role. The counselor is given guidelines for: (1) coordinating the junior high school vocational exploration program; (2) organizing the program according to particular objectives and materials cited for each grade level--seven, eight and nine; and (3) assisting teachers in implementing the program through counselors' knowledge of resource materials and resource people. The three other guides are curriculum guides for teachers of grades seven, eight and nine. For each grade level there are: descriptions of grade-appropriate objectives and materials; recommendations for teacher involvement in the program; suggested uses of materials and resources; and sample schedules of activities which might be considered typical of one month's programming.
