Teacher's Guide to Career Education: Primary Grades. Career Education: Volume 6.
Plumley, Deborah L.; Dunn, James A.
One of three guides for teachers developed by the AIR Career Education Curriculum Development Project, the manual is designed to assist primary grade teachers in introducing career education into their classrooms. Part 1 presents the philosophy of career education and an overview of how it fits into the total curricular program for grades K-9. The thrust of the career education program for the primary grades is a knowledge of self and a knowledge of opportunities and options in the world outside. Part 2 discusses how to link career education with traditional subject areas, how to teach career education instructional units, and how to locate and use supplementary resources. Part 3 deals with the development of career education materials: instructional objectives, basic learning principles, instructional units, and methods of assessing student progress. Two-thirds of the document is devoted to supplementary appendixes. Appendix 1 consists of a bank of instructional objectives grouped for kindergarten-grade 1 and grades 2-3. Topics, concepts, and activities are identified for: individual differences and assessment, knowledge of self, social responsibility, jobs and employment (career cluster and occupations), leisure, status assessment, options analysis, and personal planning.
