Staff Development in K-12 Career Education. Monographs on Career Education.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
This monograph is one in a series designed to report, in narrative form, discussions that took place during a series of mini-conferences for local K-12 career education coordinators on the subject of staff development in career education. The monograph covers two broad concerns: the substance of staff development in career education; and how staff development in career education is being carried on in selected K-12 school systems across the United States. The coverage of each of these questions is broken down into five broad topics: the need for and the nature of career education; occupations and society; the process of career development; availability and use of community resources; and infusing career education into the teaching/learning process. The views of the conference participants on each of these topics are synthesized, followed by a section of examples of programs under the topics which are working in various school systems. A list of conference participants is included in the publication. (KC)
