Calling Careers: Overview and Accompanying Teachers' Manual.
Pinson, Nancy M.
CALLING CAREERS is a televised series of fifteen 20-minute lessons intended to acquaint fourth through eighth grade students with twelve vocational clusters and to demonstrate the opportunities contained within them, the relationships between them, and the personal characteristics and work habits they require. The series also demonstrates how jobs provide satisfaction, how they are related to present interests and activities, and how community influence affects career choice. The manual, to be used with the televised lessons, assist the teacher by supplying a variety of resources for each cluster: construction, communication, medical services, health services, business, merchandising, leisure industries, agri-business, transportation, social services, personal services, and manufacturing. For each lesson, an overview provides a brief description of the unique qualities of one cluster, with behavioral objectives and a summary. Activities are suggested before and after the lesson, both general and also directed to specific curricular areas. A bibliography for students, including fiction and non-fiction, is provided. The manual is in a preliminary stage as part of the Maryland Career Development Project (K-Adult) and is subject to revision according to teachers' suggestions. (AG)
