Keep Careers in Mind: Middle School Career Education.
Dependents Schools (DOD), Washington, DC. Pacific Area.
The purpose of the handbook is to provide teachers of middle school students a resource for integrating career education into subject area disciplines. Written by a committee of educators from the Pacific area Department of Defense Schools during a summer workshop, the document provides a job cluster wheel of fifteen clusters (office occupations, personal services, public service, transportation, health occupations, agri-business and natural resources, fine arts and humanities, communications and media, marine science, construction, consumer and homemaking occupations, environment, hospitality and recreation, manufacturing, and marketing and distribution). The clusters are further refined in outline form, including jobs at all levels. In studying the clusters, students will become able to: identify various occupations, identify skills and talents of workers, observe how occupations affect life style, relate products and services with worker interaction, recognize that environments affect job location, and ascertain how a worker gains dignity and satisfaction from a job well done. Suggestions for roles of school personnel and the use of field trips, guest speakers, and media are included. The major portion of the document is devoted to specific activities in twelve disciplines, based on the clusters and objectives mentioned, which teachers can employ in the classroom. (AG)
