Kenneke, Larry J.; Suzuki, Warren N.
This handbook of promising practices in Oregon career and vocational education contains descriptions of 46 practices in the areas of career awareness, career exploration, career preparation, and career specialization. Practices are reported according to the following format: topic, intended users, purpose, available products, resources needed, and source. Discussed in the section on career awareness are practices relating to career awareness curriculum kits, guidelines for integrating career and consumer education with reading programs, parent and community resources to develop elementary school programs, and infusing career education into the school curriculum. Integrating career education into junior high school curriculums, career information delivery systems, programs for the deaf, rural cooperative programs serving academically disadvantaged students, and computer-assisted career explorations are covered. Topics examined next include building reading and mathematics skills; implementing mainstreaming and cooperative work experience programs for the handicapped; exploring careers in music, business, and agriculture; evaluating secondary programs; developing job search and placement programs; and eliminating sex stereotyping and increasing non-traditional enrollments. Special support services and programs at the community college level for academically disadvantaged and handicapped students are described.
