Career Development Resource Guide, K-5.
Howard County Board of Education, Clarksville, MD.
Developed by a supervisor of guidance and testing and a supervisor of vocational education and industrial arts with the aid of elementary teachers, counselors, and consultants, this resource guide for Grades K-5 contains ideas and activities for implementing a program of occupational awareness into the existing elementary school curriculum. The materials in the guide are intended to help children develop: (1) a positive and realistic self concept, (2) knowledge of the world of work, (3) wholesome work attitudes, and (4) using leisure time profitably. For each of these major concept areas, generalizations are listed, and activities and ideas are suggested for each grade level. A variety of techniques are suggested for accomplishing the concepts, including role playing, field trips, class discussions, films and filmstrips, and individual projects. Two sample unit plans containing rationales, objectives, teaching strategies, and evaluation suggestions are provided for developing wholesome work attitudes and knowledge of the world of work for using leisure time profitably. Sample crossword puzzles, a word maze, other student materials, and a bibliography of teacher and student references are included. A resource guide for Grades 6-8 is available as VT 015 726 in this issue. (SB)
