New York State Dept. of Labor, Albany. Div. of Employment.; Mid-Hudson Career Development and Information Center, Beacon, NY.; Mid-Hudson Industrial Association, Poughkeepsie, NY.; New York State Education Dept., Albany.
Developed by representatives from state guidance, education, and employment, this resource guide was designed to facilitate the integration of career education concepts into the curriculum of junior high schools. Recognizing that career development is a life-long process, learning experiences to develop work concepts and attitudes are outlined for: (1) English, (2) mathematics, (3) physical and life sciences, (4) social studies, (5) art, (6) home economics, (7) industrial arts, and (8) physical education. Most of the activities are concerned with development of attitudes and skills associated with vocational awareness, and are designed for teachers who are concerned about, but not necessarily trained in, vocational learning-maturation. Activities emphasize work functions and worker trait components and exposure to relevant concepts, and should be adapted by the teacher and used with other related tools. In addition to identifying concepts to be taught, the guide also outlines content, teaching techniques, and resources. Included in the appendixes are data on classifying occupations. (JS)
