Resource Unit--Level Six. Lincoln County Exemplary Program in Vocational Education.
Burton, Billy J.; And Others
The occupational resource unit, one of a series encompassing grade levels 1-10, was prepared by the Linciln County (West Virginia) Exemplary Project staff for classroom use at the sixth 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 teaching units, each focusing on a particular occupation or group of occupations. The lesson plans emphasize the interrelatedness of world economics and the contributions made by many and varied jobs to the well-being of our world. The following occupational areas are examined: the postal service, musical careers, foreign employment, and the newspaper publishing 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 multimedia occupational information.
