The Career Decision-Making (CDM) Program consists of two components: the Exploring Career Decision-Making (ECDM) curriculum materials and the supportive Career Information System (CIS). (See CE 019 229 for a description of the total CDM program.) This document contains the teacher's guide to the ECDM materials, which represent fifteen career guidance units. The units are sequenced to provide a career exploration and decision-making course for secondary school students. In the text, the units are designed as a semester course with students meeting five periods a week; however, selected units may be used for a shorter course or independent units. The first four units focus on career decision-making, self-exploration, and occupational exploration. These units introduce the basic skills that students will use throughout the program. Units 5-10 use the Career Information System components (CE 019 233-240) of the CDM program to provide experiences in exploring Worker Trait Groups and occupations in terms of personal characteristics. In units 11-13, students examine major social, environmental, and economic influences on career decisions. The two final units help students utilize exploration and decision-making skills in developing or clarifying career plans and tentative occupational choices. Each unit contains an introduction, a unit overview, a list of key terms, major concepts, activities related to each concept, and a summary. Specific instructions for the teacher are included in the margins. An activity booklet, CE 019 232, contains charts, graphs, checklists, etc., that accompany many of the activities in the text. (BM)
