Career Education: Learning with a Purpose. Junior High 7-9, Mathematics.
State Fair Community Coll., Sedalia, MO.
The guide, prepared to supplement the existing curriculum, suggests activities for teachers related to three goals: (1) Self Goal: the student developing an awareness of who he/she is and through effective decision-making what he/she can become; (2) Society Goal: the student becoming aware of the interrelationships of society with his/her school, community, family, work, and leisure; and (3) World of Work Goal: the student becoming aware of the many facets of the world of work. All objectives, the eight student goals, and the activities are coded according to which major goal is emphasized. An outline of the philosophy and concepts of junior high school career education and exploratory work experience is followed by a guide for the integration of career education into any specified course. A major part of the guide consists of 17 mathematics-related units on: transportation; administration and regulatory services; whole numbers and public service jobs (utilities); public utilities; post office; public service and protective service; communications and media; recreation; health; personal services; marine science and oceanography; environment; surveying; business and office; and money, banking, and stock investments. Each unit contains several career related activities, needed resources, and evaluation/outcome. Source lists for audiovisual materials, career and occupational information listed by occupational areas, and locally available field trip sites and guest speakers conclude the guide. (SA)
