Career Awareness K-6. Bulletin No. 734.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
The guide is designed to give Texas school personnel detailed suggestions for developing career awareness beginning with kindergarten and continuing through grade 6. The document opens with a rationale for career education and lists career concepts and objectives. The responsibilities of the elementary school principal and teacher in integrating career education concepts into the total curriculum are described. The major thrust of the guide is toward encouraging teachers to examine pupils' activities with the idea of incorporating career education concerns into those activities along with regular subject matter concepts. To this end most of the document consists of a presentation, at the primary and intermediate levels, of eight concepts relating to: the world of work; reasons for working; the worth of self, work, and workers; choice of occupation; and the relationship between school and work. Within each concept two or more instructional objectives are presented and for each objective sample activities offered, such as games, field trips, story telling, and outside speakers. Necessary supplies and resource materials are suggested. The same areas are covered at both levels. (NH)
