Career Awareness K-6: Dictionary of Occupational Titles.
Shipp, Jeanetta C.
The occupational handbook, although useful independently, is designed to be used with the career awareness guide "I Can Be Me from A to Z." The handbook is intended to aid pupils in elementary school to become aware of the occupational clusters they will be studying in more depth during junior and senior high school. The publication focuses attention on awareness of occupations rather than choice, exposing pupils to different life styles, career patterns, and educational experiences. It is organized according to the U. S. Office of Education's 15 occupational clusters: agribusiness and natural resources, business and office, communications and media, construction, consumer and homemaking education, environmental control, fine arts and humanities, health, hospitality and recreation, manufacturing, marine science, marketing and distribution, personal service, public service, and transportation. Each section offers an overview of the cluster and then provides a brief but detailed examination of almost 300 occupational titles. Each job description includes: general duties, history and future, work environment, training and education, qualifications, and advantages and disadvantages. (MW)
