HANDS-ON, Career Exploration for Bright Students.
Stovall, Betty J.; And Others
Produced as part of a 5 week workshop on career explorations for 51 bright, middle grade students and 20 teachers, the curriculum guide discusses career education, outlines the workshop experiences, considers the inquiry process, and outlines 60 units on non baccalaureate careers in 15 career clusters. A lack of career education programs with other than a college preparatory emphasis for bright students is said to have led to the workshop which provided teacher inservice training and 3 weeks of pupil experiences in six career clusters. Workshop experiences are reported to have included field trips, simulations, and actual experience with activities such as telegraphy, drafting, and bricklaying. The inquiry process of instruction which utilizes a variety of learning and teaching styles is outlined. The majority of the guide contains the career exploration units of which the tobacco farmer, floral designer, commercial bank teller, and game warden are examples. Units are outlined in terms of career cluster, career, suggested problem, introductory activities, hypothesis, investigation, conclusion, presentation, evaluation, and related disciplines. Appendixes include work preference scales used to evaluate the workshop. (DB)
