Orientation to Careers in Transportation. Teachers Guide.
Wood, Tom; Petrie, Edwin T.
Intended for use by teachers in elementary and junior high schools, this guide, which is part of a series on career education in transportation, presents an orientation program for existing and emerging careers in the field of transportation. Chapter I gives an introduction to career education and its four phases: career awareness, career orientation, career exploration, and career preparation. Chapter II stresses the use of resource materials for occupational information on careers in transportation. Chapter III explains the roles of the following participants in a career orientation program: the career orientation teacher, student, parent, administrator, counselor, academic teacher, vocational education teacher, librarian, and industry personnel. Chapter IV outlines the three units that compose the program plan (student activities for these three areas are published in a separate student manual, CE 013 878): (1) clarification of individual self concepts; (2) development of an appreciation for the dignity and worth inherent in work and the value of each individual's contribution to the world of work; and (3) a transitional, unstructured exercise in which the student chooses a transportation-oriented career and maps out his expectations as preparation for the next step in career education, the exploration phase. For units 1 and 2, rationales, objectives, suggested learning activities, and resources are included. Chapter V contains an exhaustive bibliography of resource materials available on transportation, listing books, journals, government publications and films. (ELG)
