Career Orientation and Preparation for Teen Parents Curriculum.
The Career Education and Training for Teen Parents Program at Kishwaukee College (Malta, Illinois) included a vocational orientation and preparation curriculum that focused on nontraditional occupations and local labor market trends. The class met three days a week for six weeks, with most class sessions including a field trip to a local job site. Field trips were planned to correspond to students' career interests, the job outlook for the area, and vocational programs at the college. In order to identify students' occupational interests, a career assessment instrument, the Self-Directed Search, was administered to each student. In addition, the course included activities focusing on values; aptitudes, abilities, and skills; self-esteem; assertiveness; decision making; goal setting; sex role stereotyping; nontraditional careers; career sense; and job resources. The bulk of the course description presents self-assessment instruments, course assignments, and forms used in the class. (AYC)
