Exploring Careers in Transportation: A Guide for Teachers.
Martin, Herbert; O'Brien, Ralph D.
One of 11 guides intended for use at the junior high school level of career exploration, the primary focus of the teacher's guide is on the many occupational opportunities within the transportation cluster. Four occupational clusters are treated: (1) land transportation, (2) water transportation, (3) air and space transportation, and (4) conveyance transportation. The guide offers: (1) a broad listing of occupational opportunities, (2) information needed to understand the work area, (3) instruction in recognizing economic trends, and (4) specific job descriptions. Job analyses include physical skills, health hazards, job locations, licensing requirements, training, age requirement, wages, educational requirements, working conditions, and advancements. Each unit specifies a unit purpose and objectives and includes an outline of unit, teaching-learning activities, evaluation techniques, and suggested resources. Related instructional materials accompany each unit and include reference lists, transparency masters, and other instructional materials. The appendix lists publishers addresses. (MW)
