Career Development Partnership. A Program Linking Parents, Students, Schools. A Guide to Implementation.
Myers, Edward J.; And Others
A program was developed for parent involvement in career education of students at the elementary, junior high, and senior high levels. The goal of the program is to make parents aware of the important role they play in the career development processes of their children. Topics dealt with include the following: (1) improvement of communication skills between parent and child; (2) influence of parents on career choice and work values; (3) career resources in the school and community; (4) sex-role stereotyping and its effect; (5) improvement of self-concept of children; (6) the importance of career planning; and (7) the stages of career development. At each of the three academic levels, the parents attend five learning sessions, and in Project Apollo, the senior high component, the students are also present. Except for the individual meetings in Project Apollo to review the students' records, the sessions involve the use of handouts, discussion groups, audiovisual materials, reading materials, or role playing. (Outlines are included for each session giving objectives, materials, procedure, preparation, guidelines, and alternate programs. Appendixes provide copies of handouts and questionnaires.) (ELG)
