This report presents an overview of Project CDCC (Career Development Centered Curriculum), a curriculum-based career development program for students in grades K-6. The program's purpose, approach, definitions, and model are described. The approach stresses integrating career awareness with existing subject matter as well as building into the curriculum an approach to self-awareness. Also, learning activities are linked to performance objectives for which there are evaluation techniques. Career development goals and tasks (for K-3 through K-12) are presented for each of the three CDCC program elements: (1) life-role understanding (occupational, avocational, family, and civic), (2) decision-making skill development and utilization, and (3) realistic self-concept formation. Another part of the program's framework, the Occupational Clustering system, is diagrammed. Also, to illustrate the interdependence of project framework parts, the CDCC program design considerations are diagrammed. The format of the four sections contained in each of the twenty-seven curriculum units is described. In conclusion, the project's staff training, program evaluation, and program development elements are summarized. (CSS)
