Ohio's Career Continuum Program. Career Orientation Program, Grades 7-8 for the Individual, The Occupations, and the Disciplines.
Ohio State Board of Education, Columbus.; Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Coll. of Education.
This interdisciplinary career orientation guide for Grades 7 and 8 provides general instructions for structuring a vocational education program, its implementation and evaluation, and a rationale. The student-centered career development activities will focus on: (1) an introduction to the world of work, (2) information on occupational clusters, and (3) specific jobs as examples taken from nine curriculum areas. Total involvement of the staff and community is expected after initial program planning by a steering committee. Diagrams illustrate the program focuses and three plans for scheduling career instruction. General and specific behavioral objectives and learning activities are given for the six conceptual focuses, the ten occupational clusters, and the nine specific vocations. Career examples for each occupational cluster are given, and a brief rationale for each specific vocation is included. Vicarious, simulated, and hands-on experiences are expected to be provided in a career education program. Developed by 34 city educators, this program guide is intended for use with the "World of Work Program" for the elementary grades, available as VT 015 401 (RIE, August 1972). (AG)
