Labor and Career Education: Ideas for Action. Handbook of Ideas for Involving and Integrating Labor in Career Education.
Topougis, Nicholas J.
This handbook provides specific examples of activities and procedures of labor-education collaboration within the context of the career education program. It is intended to help interested communities develop or expand labor's active involvement in the educational process. After an introduction, a section lists a number of concerns shared by organized labor and education. Other brief sections focus on career education as a vehicle for establishing communication with labor, Ohio's career development program, and labor-career education in Akron. Three sections concerning labor resources in education review the general structure and function of the various labor unions found in the community and identify areas of expertise and interests. In the next section guidelines for planning and implementing inservice labor-education programs for educators are provided. Following a section providing direction for developing integrated curriculum units on organized labor, secondary-level labor-education instructional units with sample lessons and objectives are provided. The next section gives examples of additional ways in which labor education can be incorporated into other areas of the school curriculum. A final section provides direction for developing a labor-education multimedia resource center and describes the minimum materials which should be available. A bibliography is provided. (YLB)
