The World of Work. A Curriculum Guide for Grades One through Twelve.
Pointer, Leah J., Ed.
Developed by a committee of principals, counselors, and teachers as part of the local World of Work program, this curriculum guide is designed to aid in providing occupational information and career decision-making skills for grades K-12. Major purposes of the guide are to: (1) provide occupational information that is both educational and vocational, (2) give the student experiences and training in decision-making, (3) develop in the student a healthy self-concept, and (4) utilize community resources to enhance the student's knowledge of careers. Detailed curriculum outlines are suggested for elementary grades (kindergarten, lower and upper primary), secondary grades (grades 7-11), and 12th grade. Several questionnaires, data gathering methods, sample parent interview forms, an attitude survey, and self rating evaluation charts are appended. Resource materials for all grade levels are listed.
