Career Awareness: A Guide for Implementing Career Education at the Elementary Level.
Muscatine Community Schools, IA.
The purpose of the guide is to assist faculty in the implementation of the concept of career education in grades K-6 of the Muscatine (Iowa) Community Schools. The guide begins with an outline of the philosophy and goals of career awareness and tables listing learning activities for an instructional sequence emphasizing self-awareness followed by occupational awareness. The major portion of the document presents suggested objectives, activities, resource materials, and methods for integrating the career education program into the curriculum, arranged by grade level. Objectives and activities, ranging from role playing to written reports, grow increasingly sophisticated. Supplemental materials include letter forms, field trip guides, interview tips, bulletin board suggestions, career games, and other activities to help implement self- and career awareness. Locally available career education books and audiovisual materials and recommended additional resources are listed. Concluding the document are a long range plan for career awareness extending through 1977, a career education assessment guide, and a glossary. (Author/NH)
