Career Education Activities Through World of Work Resources.
Northern Illinois Univ., De Kalb. ABLE Model Program.
"Written with the teacher's imagination in mind," this seven-chapter career education booklet's aim is to help teachers reorganize classroom activities. The booklet stresses: "One small step by teachers who thoughtfully plan...what they teach is worth more to a school system than a highly polished superstructure that is difficult to energize." A major, 50-page resource portion focuses on occupations as "organizing centers" for instruction; occupational content gives the teacher a variety of instructional choices for life-centered activities such as building, the bakery, post office, telephone, bank, newspaper, and jewelry. Occupations are presented as step-by-step models to aid teachers in learning activities for each job. Chapter headings are: ABLE Model Program Materials; Classroom Activities (focused on career education in language arts, social studies, science, math, value clarification); Utilizing the Community; Questions and Answers (workshop and interviewing, staff development); Career Education Through Teacher Planning; Planning; Planning Models; and Information About Occupations. Sample forms, flow charts, and organizational tables are included. (NH)
