The World of Work: Increasing the Vocational Awareness of Elementary School Children. A Guidebook for Teachers and Guidance Counselors.
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton. Div. of Vocational Education.
The development of a person's perception of himself in a career role is a continuing process which requires constant focus on relevant experiences throughout his entire life. This guidebook was developed to enhance teaching techniques and related media for expanding the vocational awareness of elementary school children. The emphasis is placed on approaches that should enrich the child's understanding of work as a function of man, the importance of the development of man's abilities in relation to the progress of his civilization, and on how the child may relate these to his own individuality. Although this project has been placed within the social studies subject matter area, this approach may be easily adapted to any other area of instruction. A conceptual model of vocational awareness, sample survey questions, instructional units, and activities are included in the guidebook. (CD)
