One of four documents published by the Houston Independent School District for teacher use in developing a career awareness and education program, this document is separated into four parts. The first (15 pages) contains an overview of the entire program. Suggestions for classroom activities, grading, role of the teacher, time allotment, and presentation are noted. An appendix (60 pages) provides 11 areas of information related to career development. The history of career development, writing a program proposal, press releases advisory committees, resumes, ordering materials, work quotations, career speech, knowing Houston, State labor laws, and occupational sources are explored in this section. Units on the occupational clusters of business/office occupations, marketing/distribution occupations, and communication/media occupations are featured in the remaining three sections. These units contain ideas for class presentation of concepts and procedures and flexible lesson plans for the teaching of the materials. An appendix to each covers additional information and sources through the use of newspaper articles, cartoons, graphs, charts, short stories, and job descriptions. (JC)
