K-14 Goal Matrix. Career-Vocational Development Profile. An Educational Planning Resource. Second Draft.
Educational Improvement Center of Northwest New Jersey, Morris Plains.
This publication proposes the use of a goal-based curriculum to infuse strategies and address goals that meet the career development needs of all students. Its intent is to serve as an example of how outcomes expressed as goals look, developmentally, from grade K through 14. In the matrix, (1) each major goal is broken out into more definitive statements that serve as descriptors of the particular area; (2) each objective is then viewed in terms of grade-level groupings, so that indicators relevant to age-level characteristics or maturation including social are reflected in each one--leading to continuity in the attainment of career competencies; (3) the goals may be addressed in any number of ways, thereby encouraging teachers and counselors to use their own techniques and strategies, their own content, and to adapt each goal or objective. The 10 goals of the matrix cover self-awareness, interpersonal skills, decision making, work habits and attitudes, communication and computation skills, career implications of school subject matter, socio-technological-economic-political understanding, career information, marketable skills and adaptability, and leisure preferences and personal responsibilities. The publication also contains a discussion of career education philosophy and the relationship between career education and vocational education, and references. (Teaching ideas for incorporating the matrix in various grade levels are contained in accompanying documents--see note.) (KC)
