Career Development Guides: Sociology of Occupations.
The guide contains a secondary school social studies unit for career development designed to be team-taught with the guidance counselor. The five-week unit aims at providing students with a certain knowledge of themselves and their own occupational preferences and potential through a series of discussions, readings, games, films, exercises, tests, and analyses of occupational clusters. The guide is oriented around three basic concepts: self-awareness, occupational awareness, and educational awareness. Each unit lists performance objectives, learning activities, and evaluation procedures. Appendixes, which include a reproduction of Sections 2 and 3 of the P.E.C.E. Knowledge Test, assorted supplemental activities, and diagrams of 14 career clusters arranged according to academic subjects, comprise 27 pages of the document. (JR)
