Fisher, Allison L.
This brief report describes a 1-year project to develop a curriculum on career exploration for adult basic education (ABE) students. The project components included developing and administering a needs assessment, developing and testing a curriculum during six workshops, and revising and packaging the curriculum. The curriculum was used with 35 ABE students; it helped them to focus on a career objective and was considered extremely successful based on evaluations. This report includes the staff needs assessment, a student career-planning quiz, and the curriculum. The curriculum contains outlines and lesson plans for six sessions; each of the lesson plans includes an objective, materials list, learning activities, homework assignments, and handouts. Topics covered in the six lessons are as follows: positive attitude, interest inventories, needs and values, information about the labor market, networking, and decision making. An annotated bibliography lists 12 books and 2 computer software programs on career exploration. (KC)
