Elementary School Project for Level Five: 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 fifth 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. Developing positive work attitudes, choosing goals, and studying occupation areas of personal interest are concepts stressed in the unit. Lesson plans deal with: United States industries as they relate to geographic regions, the communications field, craft occupations, emphasizing Appalachia, and the U. S. monetary system and related financial occupations. 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 experiences, competence development, resource role models, and multimedia occupational information.
