Career Investigation: Middle Schools. Bulletin No. 735.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
The bulletin gives Texas school personnel detailed suggestions for developing career exploration and investigation in middle schools. Prepared by a developmental committee composed of representatives of local school districts, regional education service centers, and career education research projects, it was designed to assist classroom teachers in integrating career education into the existing program. Each sample activity cites a performance objective that relates directly to a career concept and a career cluster. The activity is suggested for a particular unit in a subject area. More specificity is providing by citing an appropriate lesson in the unit for which the activity can be used. Many of the sample activities are easily adaptable to other subjects, some are alternatives for achieving the specific objective, while others are cumulative. Corresponding instructional resources are suggested. The following elementary level concepts of awareness are continued and expanded: attitudes toward work, attitudes toward those who work, seeing oneself as a valuable person, and the relationship of school to work.
