Cincinnati Public Schools, OH.
The career exploration program for grades 9 through 10, as part of a comprehensive K through 10 career development program, attempts to develop an awareness of and appreciation for work, extend knowledge of the variety of career opportunities, and provide experiences in career areas of individual interest. The document, a collection of materials consisting of student learning experience packets, and a resource list, is designed to introduce the students to the public and civil service occupations. The introduction discusses the career area definition, course objectives, course strategy, evaluation, and suggested time table. The course is divided into areas of government services and functions within which the students will explore representative careers. The learning activities are organized into objectives, activities and resources and cover: introductory activities, civil service, community planning, elected politics, law enforcement, fire protection, social service, postal service, courts, related career exploration, and self-evaluation of career maturity. Teaching methods involve discussion, group work, individual lessons, field trips, interviews with resource persons, films, and simulation. The appendix contains suggestions and procedures for both field trips and exploration trips, forms for exploration trips, job titles, and a resource list. (JB)
