Exploring Careers in Communication and Media: A Guide for Teachers.
Keeton, Martha; And Others
One of 11 guides which can be used as a resource for teachers in implementing the exploration phase of career education in the middle/junior high school, the guide is not intended as an exhaustive in-depth study of the communications and media field. It serves rather as an indication of directions a classroom teacher might take in introducing the communications area. It identifies the job families within the communications cluster and occupations within each family. The guide is divided into five units dealing with: (1) an introduction to occupations in general, (2) a definition of the communication and media cluster, (3) an exploration of the cluster, (4) the educational opportunities of the cluster, and (5) an evaluation of self in relation to a career in communication and media. Each unit is headed by the unit purpose, followed by performance objectives related to the unit purpose. Each objective is then developed suggesting content, teaching-learning activities, evaluation, and resources. Related instructional materials, including transparency masters are provided. The appendix offers a list of publishers and addresses, job families and occupational listings, and a bibliography of free and inexpensive materials. (MW)
