Career Education, Vocational Education, and Occupational Education: AnApproach to Defining Differences. Distinguised Lecture Series No. 2 by Kenneth Hoyt( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Career education consists of all those activities and experiences through which one learns about work; vocational education, those through which one learns about a primary work role; and occupational education, those through which one learns to work in the world of paid employment. The three terms imply a progressive narrowing of purpose. The goals of career education are to make work possible, meaningful, and satisfying. Vocational education--skill acquisition--is a major part of the bedrock of career education. Integration requires academic teachers to recognize preparation for work as a basic goal of American education, and vocational teachers must find and emphasize the commonality of purpose in education that binds them with all other educators. The basic problem career education asks today's vocational educators to face is the problem of deciding to change; there are two basic choices: one would be to emphasize vocational education as preparation for primary work goals, abandoning the traditional criterion that it should lead to gainful employment and making industrial arts, home economics, agriculture, and experiences for the "college-bound" a basic part of vocational education. The other choice would be to label the field "occupational education." Mutual dependence requires change in both fields. (Author)
Career Education Implications for Counselors. Monographs on CareerEducation by Kenneth Hoyt( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The set of four papers contained in this monograph focus on the counselor's importance in implementing a career education effort. The first paper, "Career Education: Challenges for Counselors," proposes a set of suggested changes in role and functions for school counselors. While covering a wide range of activities, it centers attention on the key importance of the counselor as a member of the career education "team." The second article, "Career Education and Counselor Education," addresses the problem of finding and focusing on an appropriate response to career education on the part of counselor education. A number of alternative actions counselor educators might consider for collaborating with career education are suggested. In the third article, "Career Guidance, Career Education, and Vocational Education," an attempt is made to conceptualize differences among these three concepts. The paper suggests that, while career education needs professional counselors, it is neither a synonym nor a substitute for career guidance. The final paper, "The Role of Career Counseling and Placement in the College and University," addresses counseling in the college and university setting. General implications for change are discussed. (Ta)
4-H and Career Education. Monographs on Career Education by Kenneth Hoyt( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph, summarizing the ideas of participants attending a two-day mini-conference, was developed to help educators to appreciate and recognize the valuable contributions that 4-h has made to career education and its potential for greater involvement in career education. The content is divided into four topic areas. First, the nature and purposes of 4-h are discussed, including examples of 4-h curricular efforts. The strength of 4-h is covered next. Third, current 4-h involvement in and commitment to career education are discussed, followed by a discussion of national, state, and local 4-h activities. Four-H and the future of career education is discussed last and includes participant suggestions for increasing the 4-h career education involvement. (Em)
Teachers and Career Education. Monographs on Career Education by Kenneth Hoyt( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The set of papers included in this monograph is intended to provide a conceptual framework for viewing examples of actual implementation of career education in the classroom. These papers emphasize the key importance of the classroom teacher to the career education effort. Characteristics of today's "good" teacher are discussed in the first paper in terms of value systems. The second paper examines career education and the teaching/learning process under four topics: (1) The rationale for career education in the classroom, (2) use of career implications of subject matter as motivational devices, (3) implications of expanding the parameters of the teaching/learning process, and (4) implications of career education for the philosophy of teaching. The third paper concerns the evaluation of career education and implications for instruction at the elementary school level. The problem of career education as a vehicle for change in teacher education programs is addressed in the last paper. The concluding section of the monograph discusses four assumptions which have implications for teacher education institutions in adopting positions and taking action regarding career education. (Ta)
