Career Exploration: Suggestions for Teachers.
The fourth of five documents developed as an outgrowth of funded programs for career education in Kentucky, the handbook for junior high school teachers involved in career education includes an overview, strategy for curriculum development, strategy for teaching, and sample units and plans. It is not a curriculum guide or comprehensive outline but rather practical suggestions for the classroom teacher. The 15 occupational clusters are listed and broadly defined. Elaborating on the career exploration stage of career development, applications in junior high school subject areas are touched on and the following teaching strategies outlined: (1) the interview, (2) research, (3) class meetings, (4) field trips, and (5) the use of specialists. A form is offered to assist in unit planning and examples of teacher developed units demonstrate an approach to integrating career education and the academic areas of mathematics, sociology, English, fine arts and humanities, social studies, and geography.
