Project Open Door to the World of Work. Career Resource Guide.
Murray, John P.; And Others
The guide is designed to aid the teacher in helping the students to increase awareness and maturity in the decision making process when alternatives are encountered to which they must react. While many of the suggested activities are designed to foster a personal maturity, the emphasis is placed upon maturity in vocational and career decision making. Within the four sections (pre-kindergarten/kindergarten, primary, intermediate, and junior high school) the material is presented under the headings of concept, behavior, activities, and reference. Each section is provided with its own list of books, films, and other resource material. World of Work concepts are introduced in a concrete fashion at the early primary level and recycled and expanded in a more sophisticated manner at the intermediate and secondary levels. This consolidated approach to career and child development is essential. The guide approaches career development in its broadest sense with emphasis on increasing awareness and understanding of the World of Work and its adaptability to one's individual life styles.
