Career Development Curriculum Guide 1970-1973. Elementary, Fifth and Sixth Grades.
Cleveland Public Schools, OH.
The guide was developed by the coordinating teachers of the Developmental Vocational Education Program for the fifth and sixth grades in the Model Cities area of Cleveland, Ohio. The purpose of the guide is to strengthen the students' ability to select and acquire a positive attitude toward work, toward all levels of occupational choices found in society, and toward themselves. To these ends, the students in grades 5 and 6 are presented with information on the broad range of available occupations and their requirements through the fifteen occupational clusters identified by the Office of Education's Bureau of Adult, Technical, and Vocational Education. The students experience career orientation through fields trips, work simulation games, and role playing and obtain experience in basic job skill operations. Clusters are to be integrated with the social studies program at the teacher's discretion. The guide uses the conceptual approach, and specific behavioral objectives are listed. Vocabulary lists, learning experiences, desired outcomes, and instructional and resource materials are also listed. Each unit is introduced by a brief discussion of the content area. A four-page annotated bibliography is included. (AG)
