Careers: Going Green while Doing Good
Arnett, Sally E.; Kozlowski, Patti; Peach, Peggy
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v86 n1 p48-50 Jan 2011
Career and technical education (CTE) is starting to turn green. Due to a host of reports, research, workforce initiatives, and scholarly speaking engagements, it is evident that higher education and workforce consultants recognize the need for today's students to gain exposure to sustainability or green career pathways. But for secondary and junior high career development teachers, the "how" to implement green career development concepts is still lacking. Limited resources are available for classroom instructional strategies that connect sustainability with career development, thus giving purpose to a project in Illinois. At Community High School in West Chicago, Illinois, the authors have found an exciting way to connect sustainability, service-learning, career exploration, and the Career Cluster Framework. The outcome of the authors' project produced an instructional manual that outlines instructions for 12 service-learning projects, including how to highlight a project, the career cluster alignment, instructional strategies (connects project within classroom for career exploration), and related skill sets.
