Career education: what it is and how to do it by Kenneth B Hoyt( Book )

12 editions published between 1972 and 1974 in English and held by 630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph was begun in the process of preparing "Career Education: a Handbook for Implementation" (available as vt 015 021 in this issue) to accompany a film and slide-tape presentation as the basis for a national series of U.S. Office of Education-sponsored conferences to introduce the career education concept to lay audiences. However, due to its length and because the information was of value to a larger audience, it has been published as a separate monograph. Prepared by leaders in the educational field, the information is designed to provide answers to questions concerning: (1) the nature of career education, including the philosophy behind it and major concepts, components, phases, and issues associated with it, (2) the need for career education, including the relationship between social unrest and lack of emphasis on career education and the achievements and deficiencies in American education, (3) how career education developed and is being implemented in practice, (4) appropriate strategies of implementation for a school system interested in career education, and (5) the potential contribution of career education, including basic changes that will be necessary at all educational levels. A selected bibliography on career education is included. (Sb)
Career education and the elementary school teacher by Kenneth B Hoyt( Book )

5 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book is designed to help elementary school teachers and administrators understand precepts underlying career education and to give concrete guides for including career education concepts in the daily classroom experience. The first chapter provides background information on career education, its basic premise, promises, and problems; the second relates elementary school objectives to career education, comparing routes to academic learning through career awareness to the traditional approach, and outlines a career awareness experience for kindergarten and each of the first six grades. Chapter Three relates career development to human development; Chapter Four offers methodology for linking school, community, and labor market in dozens of concrete examples. Parental attitudes and involvement are discussed in the fifth chapter, as well as the home and family component of the educational program. Approaches to preservice and in-service teacher training are surveyed and commented on in Chapter Six, and formats are offered for planning and evaluating inservice programs. The final chapter addresses teacher concerns about career education and suggests strategies for extending endorsements of the concept. Each chapter is followed by suggestions for further reading.

Career education in the middle/junior high school by Rupert Nelson Evans( Book )

3 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is the purpose of the book to argue and demonstrate that career education can make a vital contribution to the needs of middle school and junior high school youth. Academic subject matter and skills gained in the classroom must have relevance to the students' future work and careers. Among the key concepts involved are: (1) the primary goal of education is to prepare students for life; (2) knowledge, and the ability to apply it, is the schools' essential product; (3) all subject matter in the curriculum has career relevance; and (4) pointing up the career relevance of subject matter aids in motivating the student and reinforcing his understanding of the material. The volume is organized as follows: (1) the nature of career development and related research; (2) career development practices in ongoing programs and as reported in professional journals; (3) integrating career education into five basic academic areas; (4) applying career education concepts in the fine and practical arts; (5) work, simulated work, and work observation; (6) organizing career education--a summary of views; and (7) reform initiatives and current innovations in career education.

Career education and organized labor by Kenneth B Hoyt( Book )

6 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The three papers compiled here provide educators and others involved in career education with some information regarding the relationship of career education and organized labor. The first paper, a conference speech by Peter A. Bommarito, President of the United Rubber Workers, presents an official policy statement on career education from the rubber, cork, linoleum and plastic workers. The second paper, by Dr. Mark Schulman of Antioch College, comprises one-half of this monograph and covers the problems organized labor faces with respect to career education. The content of this paper is in three parts. The first part discusses the issues regarding the relationship between career education and labor and includes theoretical, conceptual, and operational considerations; the second part explores the short- and long-range implications of strategies to consolidate or modify labor participation in career education; and the last part offers tentative conclusions and summarizes the paper's content. The third paper, by Kenneth Hoyt, Director of the Office of Career Education, presents the views expressed by members of organized labor at a seminar dealing with the role and function of organized labor in the career education effort. His paper focuses on seven topics, some of which are the following: the kinds of career education activities in which organized labor should participate; how the k-12 school system should obtain resource persons from organized labor; organized labor representation on community career education action councils; and involving organized labor on career education field trips.

Evaluation of K-12 career education : a status report by Kenneth B Hoyt( Book )

4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This review of the research on the evaluation of career education provides a review and synthesis of five major publications prepared for and/or published for the United States Office of Education and considers a number of problems and promises facing evaluators of career education in the eighties. Reviewed are reports prepared by Tuckman and Carducci in 1974, Development Associates in 1975, Enderlin in 1976, Bhaerman in 1977, and Bonnet in 1978. It is noted that no other small program within the Office of Education has devoted so much attention to evaluating its effectiveness on such a sustained basis. The overall conclusion stated is that the available evidence is more positive than negative, I.E., at present there is more reason to believe that career education is effective than that it isn'T. Four issues discussed as concerns for evaluation in the eighties are "the career education treatment" (identifying what has been done in the name of "career education"); the need for immediate evaluation criteria for learner outcomes; finding and using proper control groups; and conducting longitudinal studies of the teaching-learning process.

Community resources for career education by Kenneth B Hoyt( Book )

5 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Major issues of two mini-conferences for business/labor/industry community representatives with extensive experience and involvement in career education are reported in this monograph. Focus is on recognizing and utilizing community resources that now exist and moving actively toward building new community resources. To this end, the monograph describes the principle of collaboration in career education and delineates the major kinds of career education activities calling for collaborative efforts between educators and the business/labor/industry community. Eleven current major national programs involved in career education are described; it is suggested that if these national efforts can be made an integral part of a total community career education effort, the goals of career education will be enhanced. Examples of how local community resources are used for career education are presented, based on the recognition that local, not national, efforts will determine the effectiveness of implementation of career education. Further issues on policy and directional questions are discussed. Lists of the two mini conferences' participants are appended. (Ta)
