Resource Unit--Level Three. Lincoln County Exemplary Program in Vocational Education.
Burton, Billy J.; And Others
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 third 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, comprising more than half the document, each focusing on a particular occupation or group of occupations. Designed to increase occupational horizons from the immediate environment to the larger community, the lesson plans compare and contrast occupations in the immediate area to those found in other communities. The following occupational areas are emphasized: railroad workers, various community occupations, the bakery, and food production and services. 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.
