Birmingham, Coleen; And Others
Focusing on occupational clusters in the areas of the arts, technology, research, and personal and product services, this unit entitled "A Few of Our Favorite Things" is one of four grade 1 units which are part of a total set of twenty-seven career development curriculum units for grades K-6. This unit is organized into four sections. Section 1 identifies three career development-centered curriculum (CDCC) elements (e.g., decision-making skill development and utilization), four career development themes (e.g., the student will use information about self and life-roles as part of decision making), four unit goals (e.g., the student will become aware of the relationship between his/her interests and making choices), and four performance objectives (e.g., after studying about animals, colors, literature, and weather throughout the school year, the student will identify which topic he/she would like to study more about or work with the most). Also included in Section I are instructions for pre- and post-assessment, student evaluation sheets, and evaluation tabulation forms. Section II describes teaching strategies for four unit subtopics (capsules) and includes suggested resources for teaching each one. Capsule titles are animals, color, literature, and weather. Section III contains eight teacher reference sheets, and section IV contains twenty-four activity sheets for students' use. (JH)
