Career Cluster Activity Book, Intermediate Level. Learn About the Fifteen Career Clusters and Color the Pictures. Teacher's Manual.
White Hawk, Sharon, Ed.
Teaching and enrichment activities for use in the career education instruction of Indian students are presented in this teacher's manual to the Career Cluster Activity Book. Fifteen cluster areas of career education are identified, an example of one career in each cluster is illustrated, and learner objectives for each profession are listed to help in the identification of such aspects as the skills required, equipment used, training needed, duties performed, and the value of the work as related to Indian people. The primary purpose of the activity book is to provide illustrations that will create in the Indian student an awareness, understanding and motivation to become involved in work, both on and off the reservation. Through the use of the materials the teacher can provide learning experiences that would encourage the students' positive attitudes toward themselves, the world of work, and others. Materials should assist the students in making decisions about their future careers and in acquiring a sense of hope as they think about the future. Although directed toward the Indian student, the book can also be used by students of other ethnic backgrounds to gain an awareness of career clusters and occupations. The book also demonstrates that American Indians can and do work in the occupations illustrated. (Author/DS)
