Junior High School English, People in Literature and Life, Mass Communication, and Situational English. Career Development Project.
Appel, Jeanette D.; And Others
The four-part guide aims at integrating the career education concepts of self-awareness, career awareness, and occupational awareness into the junior high school English and mass communications curricula. Each of the parts presents goals, developmental objectives, performance activities, outcome measures, and, infrequently, resource materials listed separately for each lesson plan. Part A of the guide deals with careers in communication for an English class and includes lessons on radio, newspapers, magazines, television, and films. Part B covers people in literature and life and focuses on present attitudes, success, strengths, values, goal setting, and creative life management. Part C consists of a 10-week mass communications course exploring techniques of propaganda in advertising and the nature and composition of the major media directed toward large numbers of the population. A separate career education component is also provided with guidelines for integrating the two. Part D is a situational English course geared toward vocational development. (JR)
