Two basic approaches to career education (CE) are available to school systems in Arkansas: a "stand-alone" approach and an "integrated" CE program. The stand-alone course, which is called career orientation (CO), is required for all junior high schools. It consists of four major units: self-awareness; career awareness; employability skills; and career action plans. The Arkansas Workforce Development Department establishes the course's content, curriculum, and instructional methods. Teachers receive endorsement to teach CO courses by taking two graduate-level courses. Because the integrated system of CE is not a required curriculum for Arkansas schools, it does not have a formal teacher endorsement program. The course content, curriculum, and teaching methods of integrated CE programs are left to classroom teachers' discretion. Integrated CE approaches may be installed in Arkansas school systems in several ways: by using a 1- or 2-week period to implement the theme and carrying it through to its end and by setting aside a period of time each day for study of the selected CE-related topic. Classroom teachers need training in career development in addition to training in their field of concentration. Successful integration of CE into traditional subject-area courses requires involvement of the total school community. (MN)
