Industrial Prep, Volume Five, Senior Year--English, Chemistry, Social Studies, and Occupational Relations.
Hackensack Public Schools, NJ.
This 12th Grade teaching guide presents four units in industrial preparation for vocational students which serve as a general and specific vocational basis either for immediate post-secondary employment or for further formal technical education. The five diverse English curriculum units range from vocational preparation and chemistry topics to discussions of leisure time activities, the film, and current war and peace issues. A social studies unit deals primarily with the sociological impact of urbanization and the civic responsibilities of industry. An occupational relations unit provides sample case studies designed to increase self-understanding in interpersonal vocational relationships, and a laboratory unit of industrially-oriented chemistry topics is designed to develop nine specific laboratory skills. Developed as part of a 3-year comprehensive interdisciplinary program by a group of educators from Hackensack High School, New Jersey, the guide employs a wide variety of "real-life" approaches, such as role-playing, to insure student interest. General and specific program goals and rationales and teaching suggestions precede the student reading materials, multimedia resource materials, project lists, and bibliographies. This volume is planned for use with four others, available as VT 015 227-VT 015 230 in this issue. (AG)
