The social studies curriculum guide is based on the Career Conscious Individual Career Education Model, designed to create career consciousness in all students at all educational levels; to help them develop necessary life competencies, attitudes, and values; to assist them in visualizing possible life career roles; and to analyze and relate these roles to their present situations. The units center on the model's four basic interrelated domains: self-knowledge and interpersonal skills, knowledge of work and leisure worlds, career planning knowledge and skills, and basic studies and occupational preparation. Objectives are outlined for grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-8 for both regular and special education. For grades 3-5, the goals include: assessing one's characteristics; comprehending different lifestyles and occupations; developing positive self-concept; and developing an awareness of problems in interpersonal processes, of the interrelationship between education, environment, and work, of responsibilities within an occupation, of how work affects leisure, of learning as a continual process, and of the relationship between personality and career development. The main portion of the document (75 pages) presents activities and outcomes for grades 3-5 organized under domain, pertinent goal, and specific objective. (JB)
