Elementary Career Awareness Guide: A Resource for Elementary School Counselors and Teachers.
Williams, Jean A., Ed.
Providing career development and career awareness opportunities for elementary school students is part of the North Carolina's Standard Course of Study. As national initiatives suggest, comprehensive delivery of career development competencies can be most easily and effectively accomplished through counselor-teacher collaboration. This guide is designed to assist elementary school counselors and teachers in identifying current counseling and classroom activities that already support career development, and suggests ways to enhance these and additional competencies. Section One discusses career development programs at the elementary school level and provides state and national goals and competencies. Section Two provides a sample of activities two school systems are using to integrate career development into their Standard Course of Study. Section Three provides a sample workshop to guide interested counselor-teacher teams in developing career activities for their classrooms and programs. Appendix A is The Secretary of Labor's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills; Appendix B is an Outline of Development Traits, Career Needs and Parent Involvement for Students (Pre-K through High School).
