AEL Career Decision-Making Program. School Subject-Occupation Index. First Edition.
Appalachia Educational Lab., Charleston, WV.
This School Subject-Occupation Index is part of a set of reference materials found in the Career Information System (CIS) component of the Career Decision-Making (CDM) program developed by Appalachia Educational Laboratory. (See CE 019 229 for an overview of the total CDM program.) This index was designed to relate Worker Trait Groups (WTG)and occupations to school subjects. It can be used to assist students in career exploration and planning or to assist teachers in relating information about the world of work and occupations to the courses they are teaching. The index has three main parts. Part I, the School Subject-Worker Trait Group Chart, quickly identifies school subjects and WTG's that are related. Part II of the index is divided into fifty-six sections, one for each school subject; each section describes the subject, lists the related occupations by WTG, and identifies the specific subject and occupational relationship. Part III contains a listing of the Worker Trait Groups; the occupations related to each WTG are listed in alphabetical order with their industry designation abbreviations in parentheses. (A professional manual, CE 019 233, and a student's guide, CE 019 239, explain the uses of this index in conjunction with other CDM materials.) (BM)
