Historic New Jersey Occupations: A Rich Resource for the Career Awareness of Today's Children & Youth.
York, Edwin; Johnson, Conrad
A timely and informative resource guide for K-12 teachers of career awareness activities, the booklet lists New Jersey historic sites, traditional craft demonstrations, and related displays of old tools. The first section explores the revival of interest in old occupations and crafts of earlier times, resulting in the development of an appreciation for modern methods of production. Also featured are craft fairs sponsored by various organizations, which can be used by teachers. Contact persons are listed. Twelve of New Jersey's historic sites and museums are described with such relevant information as the hours the sites are open, when tours are scheduled, and a description of the special features of each historic site. Also listed are 75 craftsmen willing to give demonstrations which can be seen at craft fairs, historic sites, or their own workshops. Additional resource materials are cited, including information on some models to make and things to do related to early New Jersey life, and printed resources helpful for understanding New Jersey's historic occupations.
