Teacher's Manual for the Career Development Curriculum Guides, 7th and 8th Grades.
Calhoun, Olivia H.
To help teachers make effective use of ten curriculum guides in career education for the seventh and eighth grade levels, the manual comments upon several topics: the career development philosophy, the basic ingredients of the D.C. program, the roles of the classroom teacher and the guidance counselor in the program, and the setting for the program's implementation. The manual also describes the characteristics and organization of the guides. Suggestions for planning ahead include a ten-page Grade 7 outline plan for implementing module 1 (a career cluster). Methods of introducing the curriculum to students and parents are discussed, and the importance of involving the community in classroom activity is stressed. The document concludes with chapters on career development activities and the evaluation of student learning. The ten curriculum guides are divided into clusters: consumer and homemaking (CE 001 042); communications and media (CE 001 043); fine arts and humanities (CE 001 044); construction and environment (CE 001 045); agri-business, natural resources, marine science (CE 001 046); public service occupations (CE 001 047); health occupations (CE 001 048); manufacturing, marketing and distribution, business and office occupations (CE 001 049); transportation (CE 001 050); and hospitality, recreation and personal service occupations (CE 001 051).
