This document describes Ohio's career education model in six sections. Section 1 explains the educational philosophy on which the model is based. Section 2 lists the seven developmental areas (self, individual and environment, economics, world of work, education and training, employability and work adjustment skills, and decision making) the model covers and the general goal statements for each. Section 3 lists the four grade-level components (motivation for grades K-6, orientation for grades 7 and 8, exploration for grades 9 and 10, and preparation for grades 11 and 12) and learner objectives for each. Section 4 describes the seven core functions that must be provided in every Ohio career education program (career assessment, career information, staff development, community involvement, curriculum, career-related instructional materials, and coordination of staff and activities). Section 5 describes the five special concerns that career education programs must address: combating sex-role stereotyping and sex bias; equitably addressing the career education needs of disadvantaged, minorities, women, persons who speak limited English, handicapped persons, and talented and gifted students; developing effective linkages with guidance counselors; initiating cooperative programs with job placement personnel; and providing awareness of major societal trends. Section 6 describes the career education delivery system in terms of student outcomes and the roles of teachers, counselors, and administrators. (CML)
