Focusing on the occupational cluster of public service, this unit entitled "Firefighters" is one of four grade 2 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 one career development-centered curriculum (CDCC) element (life-role understanding), three career development themes (e.g., the student will understand life-role activity as self-enhancing), four unit goals (e.g., the student will understand how the work of a firefighter can be self-enhancing), and five performance objectives (e.g., the student will be able to tell why he/she might feel good about being a firefighter). Also included in Section I are evaluation procedures (for pre- and post-assessment) four student evaluation sheets, and evaluation tabulation forms for the unit. Section II describes teaching strategies for six unit subtopics (capsules) and includes suggested resources for teaching each one. Capsule titles include duties and tools, prevention and safety, and characteristics of a firefighter.
