Middle Grades Career Awareness Guide: A Resource for Middle School Counselors, Career Development Coordinators, and Teachers.
Career exploration continues to be the focus of the middle school program in career development and is part of North Carolina's Standard Course of Study. The national experience suggests that the sequential, comprehensive delivery of career development competencies can be easily and effectively accomplished through counselor-teacher collaboration. This career guide attempts to enhance the North Carolina middle school career development program. Its purpose is to assist middle school counselors, career development coordinators, and teachers by identifying classroom activities that already support career development and suggesting ways to incorporate additional competencies into their programs. The introductory section references the National Career Development Competencies and state school counseling goals. Section 2 provides sample activities that illustrate how teachers can include career development competencies within their subject area lesson plans. Section 3 discusses the workshop outline and offers a guide for counselor-teacher teams who are interested in developing classroom activities for their school in order to build a comprehensive guide. Additional resources for career development from the American Institutes for Research and the American School Counselor Association are appended. (JDM)
