The occupational motivation program was developed to expose students to career information and to aid them in choosing and preparing for a career. The document presents an overview of the Warren, Ohio career education program and resource units for the K-6, 7-8, and 9-10 levels. Each resource unit presents a rationale, objectives, framework, and learning activities aimed at developing a curriculum incorporating career education concepts and community involvement. The K-6 level focuses on: developing positive awareness and attitudes toward work; exploring the rewards of work; job clusters; worker relationships; success performance factors and skills; and career choice. The 7-8 level orientation program makes use of community resources to direct the curriculum toward critical social and personal issues, modern community studies and issues, a survey of occupations, and related curriculum and occupations.
