Teacher's Guide to Career Education: Middle School Grades. Career Education: Volume 8.
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 middle school teachers (grades 7-9) 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 curriculum program for grades K-9. The focus of the career education program for the middle school grades is on career orientation and exploration through formulation and pursuit of goals. 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. More than half of the document is devoted to supplementary appendixes. Appendix 1 consists of a bank of instructional objectives for middle school grades. Topics, concepts, and activities are identified for: individual differences and assessment, knowledge of self, education and training, jobs and employment, social responsibility, leisure, status assessment, options analysis, personal planning, and goal pursuit.
