Guidelines for Conducting a Quality Career Investigation Program.
Clark, Sylvia
These guidelines for new and experienced educators conducting a career investigation program are the basis for revision of vocational education in Texas. Career investigation, a seventh- or eighth-grade semester course, combines vocational and business education courses and assists students in making meaningful and informed educational and career choices. These guidelines contain six chapters dealing with: (1) general information; (2) the effective career investigation teacher; (3) planning for instruction; (4) serving special needs students; (5) public relations; and (6) career guidance material and resources. Chapter 1 contains five appendices: advisory council materials, special provisions for vocational education, program evaluation materials, teacher certification forms, and lists of certification courses and teacher educators. Chapter 2 contains one appendix: a list of regional vocational education equity specialists. Chapter 3 contains four appendices: sample lesson plan, activity forms, payroll information, and progress chart-occupational clusters. Chapter 5 contains three appendices: tips on building positive relations with school personnel, a sample news release, and a certificate of appreciation. Chapter 6 lists career guidance vendors and includes three appendices listing respectively references/resources, software, and audiovisuals. The bibliography contains 18 citations. (NLA)
