Exploring Careers in Business and Office: A Guide for Teachers.
One of 11 guides intended for use at the junior high school level of career exploration, the document identifies job families within the business and office occupations cluster, identifies occupations within each family, and gives suggestions for possible classroom experiences, references, and evaluations, as well as supportive materials. The guide presents five aspects of business and office occupations: (1) a definition of the cluster, (2) exploration of the cluster, (3) trends and outlook for the cluster, (4) opportunities for training in the cluster, and (5) relation of self to the cluster. 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, transparency masters, sample forms, tests, and classroom activities. The appendix contains a description of two teacher developed model office projects, one in home economics careers and the other in business and office careers. Additional classroom materials are also included. (MW)
