Resource Unit for Levels Seven and Eight Using the Occupational Clusters in Career Orientation. Lincoln County Exemplary Program in Vocational Education.
Holstein, Herbert B.; And Others
The occupational resource unit, one of a series encompassing grade levels 1-10, was prepared by the Lincoln County (West Virginia) Exemplary Project staff to provide career exploration learning activities for the seventh and eighth grades. The career orientation materials are designed to give students a broad knowledge of the characteristics and functions, as well as the duties and rewards, of specific occupations within a broad spectrum of occupational families and to assist the student in understanding himself. The guide contains a synopsis of the entire unit, general objectives, behavioral objectives, teaching strategies, evaluation techniques, guidelines for correlating subject matter, and suggestions for field trips. Instructional materials include an occupational questionnaire, personality profile, and an outline of interview techniques. An extended resource bibliography stresses interpersonal competence and occupational information. Organized around a random selection of occupations within 15 occupational clusters, student involvement and participation is encouraged through suggestions for the use of simulated work experiences. Occupations within each cluster are categorized according to the following levels: professional, semiprofessional and managerial, technical and skilled, semiskilled, and unskilled. (MW)
