This curriculum guide, developed in South Carolina, provides opportunities for students to develop positive attitudes toward work, learn about occupations, and seek and retain employment. It is based on the competencies and foundations identified by the Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS). The guide's four units cover these topics: (1) employment and the economy; (2) career development; (3) workplace readiness; and (4) employment in the work force. Each competency area is addressed by student worksheets that consist of an objective, needed resources (such as student worksheets and student activity sheets), and a procedure for carrying out the activities. Nine appendixes include information on the following: career clusters, career interest inventories, sample lists of occupations, postsecondary education training options, the work ethic, leadership, SCANS competencies, South Carolina Chamber of Commerce Education Report, and South Carolina Curriculum Frameworks and Academic Achievement Standards.
