Guidelines in Career Development in Hawaii's Community Colleges.
Iwanaka, Ken; And Others
In order to facilitate the lifelong process of career development and to integrate the resources of the public educational institutions in Hawaii, the goals and learner objectives for the state's community colleges were developed in consonance with those of the Hawaii Career Development Continuum for grades K-12. The four major goals for career development are to help the individual: (1) achieve self-realization through the development of communication skills, clarification of personal values, and development of skills in decision-making and goal-setting; (2) establish and maintain healthy social relationships; (3) maintain economic efficiency as a producer and consumer of goods and services; and (4) fulfill civic responsibilities. Subgoals and learner objectives were developed for each of the major goals at three functional levels--awareness, accommodation, and action. The study report presents in a chart the goals, subgoals, and specific skills and activities that should be successfully accomplished at each of the following grade level units: K-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12, 13-14. Additionally, the rationale for extending the Career Development Continuum to the community college level and underlying assumptions about the nature of career development and about effective implementation strategies are presented.
