McKnight, Lola, Ed.
Six course units and learning activities for the Career Planning and Decision-Making course is presented. The course emphasizes career comprehension, career values, and career action. Career comprehension includes developing knowledge of the world of work and planning and decision-making skills. Career values focus on clarifying, identifying, and stating interests, values, and goals in personal and culturally relevant terms. Career comprehension and career values are the foundation for career action, which enables students to integrate their interests, values, and goals into their present work environment and college. In addition, it helps them take action, such as selecting a college major or reexamining their commitment to a major already selected, based on their personal values and goals. Learning activities include the following specific topics: work situations, aptitudes, the career information system, occupational preferences, credentials and competencies, and the decision situation. Appendices include: field of study-worker trait group chart, school subject-worker trait group chart, aptitude self-estimate record, aptitudes index, and an occupational information summary. (SW)
