The South Carolina Comprehensive Career Development Program for Grades K-12.
South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia.
This document presents a model Comprehensive Career Development Program for grades K-12 developed for the state of South Carolina. The model provides the framework for local school districts to evolve a program that will meet the specific career development needs for their district's students. The model is planned to organize, expand, and extend competency-based career development strategies, activities, and experiences in order to assist students in making realistic career goal plans and apprise them of how to use the public school's curriculum and experiences to further their career goals. The program is presented in the following format for grade levels K-3, 4-5, 6-9, and 10-12: (1) an overview describing characteristics and needs of students regarding career development; (2) stated career development objectives; and (3) competency-based planned activities involving counselors, teachers, parents, community, and administrators. Five appendixes provide the following: a sample student needs assessment survey for career exploration in middle and junior high schools; a curriculum plan for high schools; a list of occupational education programs in six areas (agriculture, business, health occupations, home economics, marketing, and trade and industrial education); a list of nonoccupational education programs (consumer and homemaking, industrial technology, prevocational education, and mechanical drawing) and applied and related courses (applied biology or chemistry, communications for the workplace, mathematics for the technologies, and physics for the technologies); and a list of four curriculum resource guides and six videotapes on careers.
