Orientation to the World of Work: A Guide for Teachers.
Insko, Merle A.; And Others
The exploration phase of career education in the middle school years places equal emphasis on exploration of specific occupational clusters and on the relevancy of academic subject matter to career goals. Intended for use as a resource for junior high school teachers in intorudcing the exploration phase of career education, the guide is organized in such a manner that the teacher may choose the portions that are best suited to the classroom situation. It may serve as an introduction to each or all of the 10 cluster guides: Agribusiness and Natural Resources, Business and Office, Communication and Media, Construction, Consumer and Homemaking, Fine Arts and Humanities, Health, Manufacturing, and Distribution. It also functions as an instrument to integrate appropriate sections into subjects of the existing curriculum such as general business, social studies, and language arts. It includes five sections: (1) Introduction to the World of Work, (2) Trends and Outlooks, (3) Preparing for the World of Work, (4) Entering the World of Work, and (5) Succeeding in the World of Work. Each section is organized into units, specifying unit purpose and performance objective, suggesting content, teaching-learning activities, evaluation, resources, and supportive materials. These materials include transparency masters, charts, sample forms, games, self-evaluation checklists, reference lists, and testing materials. (MW)
