Career Development Program: A Procedures Manual.
Walker, Bonnie L.; And Others
The manual describes the development and implementation of the Career Development Program at the Model Secondary School for the Deaf (MSSD). The program is said to provide a step-by-step introduction to the world of work. Nine courses are offered, with a focus on five goals: increased awareness of the world of work; exploration of a variety of occupations and occupational clusters; development of job seeking skills; development of good work habits; and development of short- and long-term career objectives and decision making skills. Objectives are listed for two courses prerequisite to work experience. A profile of each student is analyzed to determine readiness for work and appropriate job placement. If a student is not ready for work experience, alternative community resources are explored. Two courses providing part time work experience are followed by a full time summer work experience. The work placement specialist's role in placement is examined, and followup courses for the senior, focusing on career planning and decision making, are described. (CL)
