Career Awareness: Kindergarten.
Boise City Independent School District, ID.
A broad educational background is necessary to meet ever changing occupational fields, and career education is an approach incorporating career information within the regular school subjects. For the elementary level, career awareness is the main thrust in this ongoing program to integrate students and community. Self-development and understanding is stressed, and activity and student involvement is the theme. The format for the kindergarten level, major objectives, evaluation rationale, a brief description of creative dramatics, and resource list are outlined in the introduction. In selecting specific jobs, the occupational clusters list was utilized. The two methods of study for kindergarten are: (1) the development of self-understanding through inquiry, discussion, and listening, with a variety of activities (role playing, puppetry, group discussion, problem situations, music, art, and readings); and (2) the learning activities integrating subjects with careers. The five units: self-awareness (eight activities); developing good health habits (nine activities); group member (three activities); school workers (nine activities); definition of work (seven activities); jobs in the community (55 activities divided into transportation, marketing and distribution, health and hygiene, and public service); and seven culminating activities, are organized under concept, objective, and materials headings.
