Implementing the concept that there are two unchangeable factors of economic society (the dignity of the worker and the dignity of work), the handbook is designed for professional personnel concerned with elementary education in Department of Defense Dependent Schools in the Pacific Area and is to be used in all educational programs. Written by a committee of educators during a summer workshop, the handbook deals with a variety of topics which together constitute a practical program in career education. The purpose, concepts, and objectives of the program are listed. A career cluster wheel, definition of each cluster, and a partial list of occupations found in the cluster comprise the next section. The handbook next discusses the roles of school personnel in career education, community assistance, field trips, and the general characteristics and behavioral objectives for students ranging from five to eleven years old. Suggestions are made for job cluster activities and implementation of selected activities in several academic areas. The handbook concludes with a detailed list of sources including a bibliography of children's books; occupational films, filmstrips, recordings, and songs; catalogs of audio-visual material, addresses of producers and distributors, and sources of free materials.
