Building Career Awareness: A Four Year Plan.
Blanford, Elizabeth A.
This paper describes the development of a high school career program related to the Shadowing Experiences provided for counselors by General Electric. Nine Mini-Career Days, related to the different curriculum areas, provided students with at least four days of shadow sessions. Students attended the Career Days from their four morning class periods. Each class period was divided into three 15-minute segments. These segments provided the students with the opportunity to "sit in the shadow" of three resource persons during each period. The career program related subject matter they were presently studying to the world of work. It provided insight into the varied opportunities available. Students had a look at persons engaged in a career in which they were interested and an opportunity to talk with them. End-of-the-year program evaluations were largely favorable. (Author)
