Developed by television staff and personnel from a demonstration project funded by Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, this teaching guide contains four television programs designed to provide children from various socioeconomic backgrounds in Grade 3-8 with information concerning hospital, public health, and dental occupations. In addition to providing information, the materials are designed to demonstrate the role of work, develop positive work attitudes, and facilitate realistic educational choices. Information provided for the four television programs, which are revisions of tele-lessons first presented during the 1968-1969 school year, include: (1) study guides containing the purpose of the programs, highlighted concepts, vocabulary terms, supplementary books and films, and activities for before, during, and after the telecast, (2) the television scripts, (3) posters depicting the health personnel in their work setting, and (4) duties, personal qualifications, and training requirements for each occupation. To aid other schools in the production of similar programs, the guide contains a model and report describing the procedures followed in developing the materials. (SB)
