Career Development and Occupational Studies: A Supplement to the Adult Education Resource Guide and Learning Standards.
Peavey, Kay S.; Krieger, Alan
This publication focuses on New York's learning standards for career development and occupational studies (CDOS) in adult education: career development, integrated learning, universal foundation skills, and career majors. A section on the adult learner provides information on engaging learners to increase motivation. The next section focuses on connecting the work-based skills of CDOS to adult goals. It discusses these three essential components that facilitate a successful transition from school to work and careers: work-based learning, school-based learning, and connections between the two. The following pages examine the CDOS standards as distinct entities, based on the recognition and assumption that there is a need for a continuum of ongoing support for learners throughout the entire process. The next section considers CDOS links since the CDOS (and six other) learning standards do not stand alone. It discusses other pieces that educators must use, including performance indicators, hands-on learning experiences, support services, and assessment. Appendixes are a list of 28 organizational, online, and print resources. (Contains 10 references.) (YLB)
