Career Education Manual for Home Teachers. Centralized Correspondence/Study.
Ostenson, Alan; Kemp, Margaret R.
The purpose of this booklet is to explain to the home teacher (or parent) what career education is, why career education is needed, and how to use career education in the course of teaching elementary students at home. The first two sections of the booklet define career education and explain its purpose. In the next section, some career education skills and processes that most adults have learned to some degree and use in daily living are listed. This list can be used as a source of objectives for students in a career education program. The final section of the booklet lists and explains eight elements of career education that are important for students. The eight elements are the following: appreciation and attitudes, self-awareness, decision making, educational awareness, career awareness, economic awareness, beginning competency, and employability skills.
