Career Awareness: Suggestions for Teachers.
The third of five documents developed as an outgrowth of funded programs for career education in Kentucky, the handbook for elementary teachers involved in career education includes an overview, strategies for teaching, and sample units and plans for grades K-6. It is not a curriculum guide or comprehensive outline but an aid to teachers not familiar with career education concepts who wish to develop their own resources. The 15 occupational clusters are listed and broadly defined. Elaborating on the concept of career awareness at the elementary level, teaching strategies are outlined: (1) the interview, (2) research, (3) class meetings, (4) field trips, and (5) the use of specialists. A typical form for unit planning introduces a 65-page section offering teacher-developed sample units and plans for each grade level. Each unit plan outlines general and behavioral objectives, job listings, initial activities, discussions, research, interviews, vocabulary, curriculum integration, simulation, hands-on, culminating activities, and evaluation techniques.
