The first 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 career orientation and exploration experiences for the seventh grade student. The teacher-developed materials focus on careers as they affect the family model in day-to-day living. The two major concerns within the family life concept are living within one's means and effective family communications. A model family, typical family budget, and community are described. Behavioral objectives, specific concepts, classroom activities, and materials needed are suggested for the following subject areas: English, social studies, mathematics, science, home economics, industrial arts, foreign language, music, physical education, and art. A brief discussion of further activities for the eighth and ninth grades, leisure time suggestions, and a bibliography conclude the document. (MW)
