Exploring Careers in Construction: A Guide for Teachers.
Thomas, John C.
One of 11 guides which can be used as a resource for junior high school teachers in implementing the exploration phase of career education, the guide allows students an opportunity to learn about the construction cluster and their own personal aptitudes and attitudes. The first unit of the guide provides an overview of the contstruction industry, trends and outlooks, training opportunities, and organized labor. The remaining six units deal with six job classifications within the construction industry: design and planning, carpentry, masonry, electricity, metal, and finishing. The guide contains units on each of these areas along with suggestions for teaching them in the laboratory situation. Each unit specifies a unit purpose and performance objectives and includes: (1) a brief description of unit content, (2) teaching-learning activities, (3) evaluation techniques, and (4) suggested resources. Related instructional materials include reference lists, audiovisual aids, charts, transparency masters, diagrams, and forms. The appendix offers planning and evaluation materials, a dictionary of occupational titles, training for construction jobs, resource utilization, and addresses of publishers and distributors. (MW)
