Central Kansas Area Vocational Technical School, Newton.
These ten sequential instructional modules are intended to assist secondary students in the development of occupational decision-making skills. Designed for grades 9 and 10 (but adaptable to grades 8, 11, and 12), the minicourse covers three areas--values, occupational information, and career decision making (which links the other two areas). Topics include values clarification; individual values; different rewards from different jobs; setting value priorities; choosing between competing alternatives; individual abilities and interests; steps in decision making (goal setting); errors in decision making and collecting information; occupational costs, rewards, and characteristics; and career decision making. Each unit contains some or all of the following information: developmental and performance objectives, capsule description of the unit, materials needed, and student activities with necessary handouts and materials.
