Career Education from Concept to Implementation--A Working Model.
Paravonian, Sam; And Others
Divided into four chapters, this handbook was developed to implement a career education program which will reinforce the instructional program by providing the students with opportunities and experiences which will enable them to recognize the relationship between what they learn in school and how they will utilize these learnings outside of the school setting. Chapter 1 provides a brief introduction to and definition of career education and a description of the program goals and components. Chapter 2 describes in detail the model which was developed and used as the basis for the learning modules as well as the strategies for involving the community. Selected teacher-developed learning modules are included in chapter 3. These modules cover different subject areas and grade levels (grades 1-8) for each of the four career education components: self study, information, social responsibility, and planning and decision making. Each module follows a similar format which includes the following elements: subject area, grade level, career education objective, performance objective, activities, and resources. An example of a multi-discipline module and strategies for utilizing community resources are also included in chapter 3. The final chapter presents a brief note on how parents can help with the program. (BM)
