World of Work: Grade Nine. Teacher's Guide for the School Year 1967-1968.
Minneapolis Public Schools, Minn.
This manual is designed to serve the classroom teacher as a guide to the accompanying televised series of programs on the world of work. The Television Series is designed to give a broad overview of many occupations, by bringing into the classroom more than fifty "guests" from all levels of preparation: the semi-skilled, the skilled, the technical, and the professional. The lessons employ familiar classroom techniques in bringing guidance information to the students, not from professional entertainers, but from people actually working in the community. The prime objectives of the series are: (1) to present information on occupation areas, job families, and related types of work possibilities; (2) to stimulate further investigation by the students into the world of work, and (3) to provide a basis for program planning for the senior high years. Lessons have been based upon the interest categories found in the Kuder Preference Record, and are prepared by the Radio--Television Department of the Minneapolis Public Schools. (Author/CJ)
