Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Independent School District, TX.; Texas Education Agency, Austin.
Prepared by staff and consultant coordinators of a pilot project from the contributions of 27 elementary and junior high school teachers, this curriculum guide is designed to orient students in Grades 5-7 to the world of work by stimulating interest in planning a career or vocation. The materials are divided by grade level into two sections, with Grades 5 and 6 concentrating on career awareness through the exploration of 26 different occupations and Grade 7 concentrating on such career development topics as self awareness, educational awareness, employment-seeking skills, and other types of occupational information. The following instructional components are provided for each occupation and career development topic: (1) general and behavioral objectives, (2) learning experiences, which consist of such activities as student skits in which students role play workers, individual activities, and group discussions stimulated by resource persons, films, or other instructional aids, and (3) a listing of instructional materials and resources. A bibliography of films, filmstrips, resource persons, field trips, magazines, and books is included. (SB)
