Career Education: An Idea Book.
Portland Public Schools, OR.
The career education idea book is aimed at the K-6 level and is designed to give useful ideas to teachers making career education a part of their program. The main thrust is developing an awareness of one's self and of the world of work. The book is color-coded for convenience; approximately half is comprised of activities in 11 areas: self-image; family needs; economics; job characteristics; lots 'n lots of jobs; constructions; things to make; class organization; riddles, dramas, and games; field trips; and units. A 26-page audiovisual resource list provides titles available to the Portland public schools, but does not give original sources. Twenty pages illustrate bulletin boards featuring career education concepts, followed by 20 pages of bibliography, listing: (1) sources of information on occupations from accounting to wholesaling (among these is a two-page listing of titles and sources for teacher guidance materials); (2) children's books, grouped by academic subject matter; and (3) titles and sources of professional materials for the teacher. The volume concludes with an index listing each activity, its grade level, and the academic subject areas with which it correlates. (AJ)
