Elementary School Project for Level Two: Resource Unit. Lincoln County Exemplary Program in Vocational Education.
Lincoln County Schools, Hamlin, WV.
The occupational resource unit, one of a series encompassing grade levels one through ten, was prepared by the Lincoln County (West Virginia) Exemplary Project staff for classroom use at the second grade level or for use as a teaching model. The guide contains a synopsis of the entire unit, general objectives, behavioral objectives, teaching strategies, evaluation techniques, methods for correlating subject matter, and specific lesson plans each focusing on a particular occupation or group of occupations. The four lesson plans, which comprise more than half the document, introduce the students to new and different kinds of community workers. This phase of career awareness involves job skills related to the total community. The occupational areas emphasized include aircraft and agricultural occupations, clothing manufacture, and the construction industry. Also included are suggested field trip sites, techniques for use of experience charts, suggested parental letters, and a resource bibliography of available materials. Each lesson plan has a behavioral objective, and is divided into three basic components: procedures, student activity, and notes and resources. The career education model implemented in this series is developed around five elements: field trips, simulated exercises, competence development, resource role models, and multi-media occupational information.
