Resource Book of Sample Lesson Units for Career Education. Career Education: Volume 9.
Dunn, James A.; Steel, Lauri
Part of the AIR Career Education Curriculum Development Project, the series of 15 exemplary lesson units for grades K-9 reflect a variety of topics and instructional methods. The units, developed through the coordinated efforts of AIR and selected teachers from nine public school systems, have been evaluated by teachers and curriculum specialists and field tested in classrooms and found to be interesting, easy to use, and relatively effective. All units contain a (1) teacher section (objectives, activities, materials, teaching suggestions, module test answer key) and (2) a criterion-referenced module test. An additional unit section of materials is included for units requiring student worksheets, exercise booklets, or other reproducible information. The units reflect various aspects of career education such as--(1) K-Grade 1: knowledge of self and individual differences; (2) Grades 2-3: leisure, jobs, and employment (minicommunities); (3) Grades 4-6: knowledge of self, social responsibility (balance of nature, population, and environment), jobs and employment (career information, career fair, health careers); (4) Grades 7-9: vocational training opportunities, exploring career clusters, options analysis (career information through literature and reviews, primary and secondary sources of career information), personal planning.
