Career Development Curriculum Guide, 1970-1973. Junior High, Seventh through Ninth Grades.
Cleveland Public Schools, OH.
The guide was developed by the coordinating teachers of the Developmental Vocational Education Program for the junior high school level 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 junior high school students are to learn the functional interrelationships between the production, management, and service areas of business and industry. Students also sample the operations and skills required in a number of occupations through work-site tours and experience. All seventh grade students are to participate in the program. Participation in grades 8 and 9 is optional. The Office of Education's division of fifteen occupational clusters is to be integrated into all junior high school classes. A conceptual approach is used, listing specific behavioral objectives. Vocabulary lists, learning experiences, desired outcomes, and instructional and resource materials are specified. Each unit coordinates subject area, grade level, and occupational cluster. An appendix of related materials and a four-page annotated bibliography are included. (AG)
