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 regular school subjects. For the elementary level, career awareness is the main thrust in this program to integrate students and community. Self-development and understanding is stressed and activity and student involvement is the theme. The format for grade one, performance objectives and criterion test rationale, and major objectives are included in the introduction. The teacher aids section provides suggestions for activities, and the guidance component includes six activities organized as a guidance kit directed toward self-understanding and awareness of interpersonal relations and independence. The two methods utilized for grade one are: (1) the development of self-understanding through inquiry, discussion, and listening, with a variety of activities; and (2) the integration of curriculum with careers through learning activities. The career units are divided into four areas: introduction (10 activities); school workers (41 activities: introduction, teachers, counselors, principals, secretaries, custodians, librarians, special educators, cooks, bus drivers, and conclusion); family workers and helpers (36 activities); and health and hygiene (24 activities); doctors and dentists, hospital personnel, barbers and hairdressers, sanitation workers, and conclusion).
