Career Focus in Social Studies. Supplement.
Cartwright Elementary School District 83, Phoenix, AZ.
The supplement, a product of an elementary school district career education workshop, has been designed to assist the classroom teacher in integrating career education into the social studies curriculum. Focus is on eight future-oriented elements or themes that promote developmental growth, interaction, and decision-making skills: career awareness, self-awareness, appreciations/attitudes, decision-making skills, economic awareness, skill awareness and beginning competency, employability skills, and educational awareness. An analysis of the eight career education themes includes: (1) knowledge children might need, (2) related feelings and values, and (3) related experiences. Numerous suggestions are included for teaching the various career education themes. A section on instructional materials describes materials available at the local district instructional material center as well as other related materials. More than three-fourths of the document consists of various teaching units designed for primary, intermediate, junior high school, and special education classes. Individual units provide: a career goal statement, unit description, teacher and pupil activities, resources, and evaluation. (EA)
