Everyday Career Development: Participant and Facilitator Guides.
Redekopp, Dave E.; And Others
This guide provides a reference to educators interested in helping students make the link between school programs and career opportunities after high school. Presented in two parts, it focuses on ways of infusing career education into the high-school curriculum. This approach reduces the gap between career education (usually relegated to guidance counselors and other specialists) and education. The guide operates on three principles: (1) career development issues are significant to secondary school students; (2) teachers exert considerable influence over students' career development; and (3) resources for guidance and counseling services may dwindle, curtailing the career development help students need. The most important motive for the guide, however, is to show students that their education and their career development are inextricably linked. By the end of the book, it is hoped that teachers will have acquired some strategies and tools that can be comfortably and effectively implemented within the classroom without increasing the workload. The facilitator's guide offers a daily schedule and suggestions so that teachers can bring this approach to life through examples, activities, discussions and practice sessions. (RJM)
