What's in Store for the Future: A Career Day Model.
Brown, Sharon; And Others
This document describes Career Day in Killeen Independent School District in Texas, a program designed by one school guidance department to meet the developmental needs of middle school students, to make students aware of the options available to them after high school, and to help students understand that preparation and achievement now is the basis for goal attainment in the world of work later. The format of the half-day program is presented and it is noted that students will attend three 35-minute sessions on careers of their choice which will be led by experienced persons in the fields. A timetable outlines procedures to be completed as early as 10 to 12 weeks before the scheduled career day and as late as 2 to 3 days after the career day. The schedule suggests when to: get approval for career day, poll students to determine career interests, arrange for parent-presenter volunteers, schedule students for sessions, write press releases, arrange for audiovisual equipment, meet with student guides, welcome presenters, compile student and presenter evaluations, and thank presenters. Materials provided in this document include forms for scheduling of career day, session rosters, letters to parents, worksheets of career presenters, student poll forms, letters to presenters, suggestions for presenters, the Career Day agenda, memos to faculty, and student and presenter evaluation forms.
