Career Education: Concepts and Practices.
Smey, Barbara A.
This manual is designed to inform local school district personnel of career education concepts and practices. These materials, representing a one-day workshop, consist of nine activities. Topics covered in the activities are an overview of the workshop, definitions of career education, and differences between career and vocational education; career education values and implications; and the historical background of career education (including legislation), the need for career education, career education goal areas, elements of an operational career education program, and infusing career education into a course of study. The activities contain a statement of purpose, information on which to base lectures and discussions, and specific instructions for implementing suggested exercises. Ten activity handouts are provided. These include a workshop agenda, career education definitions, a personal career line, a career education goal area game and answer sheet, an instrument for assessing career education programs, and a description of the elements of an operating career education program. (Five other career education workshops covering career education linking agents, program design, program improvement, opinion surveys, and school improvement processes are available separetely through ERIC--see note.)
