The document is a classroom teacher's guide to a series of 30 television lessons designed to introduce intermediate-grade children in the State of Washington to occupations in 14 fields of vocational work. The guide could be used by teachers who do not have access to the televised series as a framework for career education activities. Two constants relevant to survival (people are dependent on their environment; people are dependent on people) form the basis for the concepts developed in the lessons; the series does not emphasize vocational decision making, but provides the early exposure to the world of work necessary to develop realistic identification with people and needs. Each lesson guide presents the concepts to be developed, the lesson topic, its focus, the location of the television film, and background information. For each lesson, several in- and out-of-classroom activities are suggested. The purpose of each of these activities is given, the necessary materials listed, and the procedure specifically detailed, and illustrated where necessary. Appended to the guide are program music, student and teacher resources, and clusters of occupational models. (AJ)
