Exploring Careers in Natural Resources and Environment: A Guide for Teachers.
Tulloch, Rodney; Carpenter, Bruce
One of 11 guides intended for use at the junior high school level of career exploration, the document identifies job families within the natural resources and environmental occupations cluster, identifies occupations within each family, and gives suggestions for possible classroom experiences, references, and evaluations. The guide is divided into five units: (1) an orientation to occupations in natural resources and environment, (2) a definition of the cluster area, (3) an overview of the occupational cluster, (4) educational opportunities in natural resources and environment, and (5) an evaluation of self in relation to a career in the cluster area. Each unit specifies unit purpose and objectives and includes an outline of unit content, teaching-learning activities, evaluation techniques, and suggested resources. Related instructional materials include reference lists, charts, sample forms, and classroom activities. Over 100 pages of the appendix are devoted to occupational briefs. Also included in the appendix are: a list of occupational titles, a content outline of job families, and a list of publishing companies. (MW)
