"Countdown to the 70's." Occupational Information for Upper Elementary and Middle Grades.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Div. of Vocational, Technical and Adult Education.
An innovation approach to teaching elementary and secondary students about the world of work was developed under ESEA Title III funds in Atlanta using 39 television programs. This program guide was adapted from the Atlanta program for use in Florida schools. Although it is built around the 39 films, most of the information will be useful to the teacher or curriculum writer in the present form. Each unit represents an occupational area, such as employment opportunities in hospitals, education, banking, or major industries such as petroleum, textiles, or newspapers. For each occupational area, specific jobs are defined according to duties, personal qualifications and training. Thus for the unit covering education, the specific jobs of principal, teacher, teacher aide, custodian, cafeteria manager, secretary, counselor, librarian, library aid, maintenance mechanic, and statistician are outlined. Suggested supplementary activities, a glossary of related vocabulary terms as listed in each unit, and recommended references are included. (CD)
