Federal training and work programs in the sixties by Sar A Levitan( Book )

6 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At a time when many manpower programs have been charged with gimmickry and refunded without adequate assessment of impact and techniques, this volume attempts to develop a broad base of factual and analytical knowledge by which some judgement can be made of the gaps in manpower programs and policies as well as needed inputs. Part 1 traces development of manpower programs aimed at improving the employability of those labor force participants who are relatively disadvantaged in the competitive labor market. Parts 2 through 8 review the seven major programs funded by the Federal government. A final section focuses on administrative problems of the $2 billion Federally-funded manpower package and provides a prescription for functional restructuring of manpower programs discussed in the volume. This is an enlargement and revision of an earlier paper, "Making Sense of Federal Manpower Policy." (Editor/DM)

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

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 311 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 in the academic classroom by Garth L Mangum( Book )

7 editions published in 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A product of a conference sponsored by the National Foundation for the Improvement of Education for classroom teachers from national associations representing seven academic areas, the book explores the various relationships between traditional academic disciplines and career education concepts. The book is designed to motivate teachers to include career education as part of their classroom techniques and content and to provide illustrations and examples to implement career education. Interspersed throughout the book are sections of various classroom activities and related occupational information. Individual chapters link career education to mathematics; English; social studies; visual arts; foreign languages; and health sciences, recreation, and physical education. Today's science teacher is faced with developing a scientifically literate population and meeting society's increased need for scientific technicians. Career education in mathematics tends to reinforce and motivate mathematical learning, and English communications skills are vital for work and leisure, while both social studies and career education have intimately related objectives. Career education in art emphasizes the broad functions of a wide variety of occupations; effective career education development in foreign languages implies close contact with guidance personnel. Reorganization of physical education into three separate disciplines has increased the opportunities for career education. (Ea)
Career education in the middle/junior high school by Rupert Nelson Evans( Book )

3 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 289 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.
