Exploration of Careers in Transportation. Student Manual.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Vocational Education.
Part of a series devoted to the topic of career education in transportation, this manual, which is intended for use by students in grades 9-10, provides learning activities for a career exploration program in the field of transportation. Following the program plan outlined in the teachers' guide (CE 013 879), the activities are divided into the eleven categories of the program's objectives: (1) communication skills, (2) transportation's contribution to society, (3) changing employment, (4) job operations, (5) employment outlook for specific fields, (6) skills required, (7) job descriptions, (8) career ladders, (9) life styles, (10) entry level requirements, and (11) career planning. As an individualized instructional program, the types of activities included allow the students flexibility in choosing how and what objectives they will work towards. The activity worksheets that they will complete for each objective require them to consult outside resources, such as industrial personnel, newspapers, and reference materials, and analyze their own thoughts. In a section of supplementary teacher material, it is suggested that the procedure of students working in small groups may be more beneficial than their working individually. (ELG)
