Mississippi State Dept. of Education, Jackson. Div. of Vocational and Technical Education.; Jones County School District, Laurel, MS.
The guide provides a career education curriculum for grades K-6, incorporating the career awareness concept into the ongoing curriculum. The first section, offering guidelines for grades 1-3, focuses on the family. These educational objectives form the organizational foundation for specific grade level instructional objectives, procedures and/or techniques, suggested materials, and evaluation methods. Section 2, offering guidelines for grades 4-6, is organized according to subject area rather than grade level and provides educational objectives for the areas of: health, language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science. Utilizing basic and supplementary textbooks, the guide correlates textbook content and resource materials with activities related to specific career paths. Illustrations and diagrams are provided where useful. The appendix offers 39 pages of science activities and projects, a 27-page bibliography of reference materials and teaching aids, and a 39-page elementary career resource material directory. (MW)
