Resource Unit for Levels Nine and Ten Using the Occupational Clusters in Career Exploration. 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 ninth and tenth grades. The materials are designed to provide experiences that will enable students to make realistic occupational choices, by gaining an understanding of the psychological aspects of work as it relates to their own temperaments, personalities, values, and abilities. The format contains a synopsis of the entire unit, general objectives, behavioral objectives, teaching strategies, hands-on activities, evaluation techniques, and guidelines for correlating subject matter. Instructional materials include an occupational questionnaire for indepth study, fact sheets, a personality inventory, listed interviewing techniques, and typical personnel forms. Sixty-five pages are devoted to a listing of specific occupations within the occupational clusters as they correlate to academic disciplines. This correlation of all the disciplines is intended to aid students in acquiring competencies appropriate to their projected adult societal roles. An extended bibliography lists books, kits, and related audiovisual aids. (MW)
