The second of a three-part series developed to show how the junior high school curriculum can be enhanced by adding real-life career oriented processes, the document provides further career exploration experiences for the eighth grade student. Building on the home model utilized in the seventh grade element of the series, the booklet treats the life style of the model family and explores the varying life styles of families choosing varieties of dwellings. A sequence of events encountered in planning and building a home is outlined. Academic areas and suggested speakers in relevant occupational areas are correlated to the construction timetable. Career exploration activities are related to the home building process in each of the following academic disciplines: art, English, foreign language, home economics, industrial arts, mathematics, physical education, science, and social studies. Each unit includes a list of classroom objectives, specific concepts, classroom activities, materials needed and sample instructional materials. The final section, Occupations in Housing, suggests reference and resource materials related to architecture, banking and money, building, city planning, engineering, interior decoration, home maintenance and repair, labor unions, landscape architecture, and other housing related occupational areas.
