Vocational Development in the Elementary School. A Curriculum Resource Guide.
Mid-Hudson Career Development and Information Center, Beacon, NY.; Mid-Hudson Industrial Association, Poughkeepsie, NY.; New York State Education Dept., Albany.
This resource guide for vocational development curriculums in the elementary grades provides subject content, concepts, teaching techniques, related concepts, and resources for occupational activities, focusing mainly on social studies. The program works from the principle that all young people will be entering the world of work; therefore all students are continuously exposed to community economic opportunities, good work habits and attitudes are encouraged, and community involvement in the curriculum is stimulated. Presented separately for the primary and intermediate grades in a five-column format, this chart for elementary school teachers covers five areas by means of questioning techniques: (1) philosophical, (2) sociological, (3) psychological-physiological, (4) economic, and (5) educational. Developed by a workshop of elementary school teachers, this curriculum supplement includes appendixes giving selected job titles, instructions for using the Dictionary of Occupational Titles, and a circle graph on job benefits. Space for the teacher's notes is provided. (AG)
