The career awareness guide is designed to help elementary school children develop an awareness of themselves as persons and as members of a community as well as an appreciation of the richness in variety and choice in the world of work. The lessons are designed to minimize the need for teacher research, contain materials which are readily available, and provide objectives, activities, resources, and evaluation. Topic headings for primary grades (K-three) cover awareness of self in relation to others, awareness of careers in the community, and career choice. A supplementary list of materials for the primary grades includes films, a wish auction, a job application, and a worker evaluation form. Topic headings for the intermediate grades four and five include positive attitude toward oneself and awareness of oneself as a social being, occupational awareness in the sense of knowing the operation of the working world and cultivating good work habits, and active exploration of the world of work. Supplemental activities for the intermediate grades include games, role playing, projects, field trips, and interviews. Appended attachments include: an interest inventory, a background information form, a job application form, a worker interview questionnaire, questions for class discussion, and an employee critique sheet.
