Looking into Future Experience. An Early Career Awareness Program.
Smith, Jacqueline; And Others
This manual consists of guidelines, resources, and instructional materials for use in developing and implementing an early career awareness program for kindergarten through sixth grade students. The guide, which is based on an early career awareness program that was implemented at Nantucket Elementary School in Massachusetts, deals with the following topics: looking into student activities (introducing the world of work, using the self-directed search, using drama to foster self-awareness, and organizing a career day); looking into teacher involvement (introducing teachers to career awareness, conducting a career awareness workshop, sample lesson plans, and career games); and looking into parent participation (parent involvement and programs for parents). Appended to the manual are an annotated bibliography and a series of songs and skits for use in a self-directed career search. (MN)
