Tennessee Univ., Knoxville. Dept. of Technological and Adult Education.
This guide provides information and suggestions for development of a guide to local resources. Part I discusses why the community should be involved in career development, benefits of a community resource guide, what community resources can provide, and use of the guide. Part II focuses on development of the resource guide. It covers who should be responsible, determination of areas of need, investigation of available local help, and preparation of a form for collecting information on resources. Selection of a procedure for obtaining information, the population to be contacted, and choice of method of evaluation of resources are also addressed. Sample forms are provided. Part III offers the following ideas for using community resources: tips for field trips and use of resource persons; suggested information for classroom guests; guidelines for resource speakers; field trip guidelines and examples of forms; suggested class activities, such as games and display activities; special types of career days; and suggested student assignments. Three unit outlines are provided that illustrate use of community resources in infusing career education into existing curriculum areas.
