Career Education and the Teaching of English. Information Series No. 215.
This paper provides a framework for understanding the relationship between career education and the English language arts and suggests resources which describe specific educational approaches. The major areas which are discussed include career education, English language arts, the role of language arts in career education, career development strategies which are appropriate for various stages of the career development process, careers in language arts, and the special needs of linguistically diverse students, i.e., speakers of non-standard English, students for whom English is a second language, and language-handicapped students. The paper attempts to clarify the definition of career education, define the relationship between career education and the language arts, and develop strategies for delivering career education at various educational levels. The paper serves as a resource for teachers of English and related fields, educational administrators at all levels, school board members, university trustees, students and their parents, educational publishers, librarians, the communications media, government officials, employers, and other persons having an interest in career education as an aspect of the teaching of English.
