Career Development Guides: Situational English.
Appel, Jeanette D.
The guide provides lesson plans for a 12-week situational English course geared toward career development at the junior high school level. The course aims at increasing eighth- and ninth-grade student self-awareness, involving interested parents in classroom activities, and providing students with an opportunity to evaluate what they have learned about themselves and careers during the course. Each unit presents goals, developmental objectives, performance activities, and outcome measures. Activities include job explorations, interviews, speeches, lifestyle profiles, and special projects. Unit topics cover such things as career clusters, career profile diaries, leisure time activities, employee-employer relationships, reasons for working, personal preferences and dislikes, governmental structures, listening attitudes, oral and written skills used in business, and lifestyles of various careers.
