The World of Work: Vocational Education in Elementary Schools.
Bossung, Esther L.
The document is an annotated listing of career education materials at the elementary level which were on display in 1972 in the Instructional Materials Center of the Louisville Board of Education Exhibit Library. Books, worktexts, picture collections, flannel board materials, recordings, and transparencies are included. The materials deal with such areas as: work and workers; vocations and careers; transportation in the city; economics; money and how we use it; cities, communities, and needs; guidance; pollution; and conservation of resources. The materials develop such basic economic concepts as: (1) man has unlimited needs and wants, but limited resources; (2) due to limited resources, man must continually make choices between his needs and wants; (3) money is imperative in a complex society; (4) man is both a consumer and a producer of goods and services; (5) today's economy requires specialization for efficiency; (6) specialization increases the need for interdependence; (7) a successful economy makes the best use of land, labor, and capital. Publishers and prices are included. (Author/AJ)
