Career Education: Some Essential Learner Outcomes. Junior High Grades 7, 8, 9.
Tennyson, W. Wesley; And Others
This guide, one of a series for various grade levels, contains Some Essential Learner Outcomes (SELOs) for career education in junior high schools in Minnesota. (The SELOs are selected samples of knowledge statements considered as essential learning outcomes for students in each of the subject areas taught in schools.) These SELOs for the junior high grades are organized as seven management tasks, as follows: (1) clarification of a self-concept; (2) assumption of responsibility for career planning; (3) formulation of tentative career goals; (4) acquiring knowledge of occupations and work settings; (5) acquiring knowledge of educational and vocational resources; (6) awareness of decision-making process; and (7) acquiring a sense of independence. Each management task contains several performance objectives (e.g., "describes how the expectations of others affect one's career plans"), further refined into enabling objectives (learning activities) such as "describe resources available to one within the school for occupational information." The guide also contains a map of the educational cooperative service units in Minnesota and background information on the Minnesota Career Education Incentive Program and the Minnesota Five-Year Career Education Plan.
