Career Education K-6.
Lawrence Unified School District 497, KS.
The elementary level career education instructional materials are arranged by grade level. Separate sections are devoted to each level and include an overview of the curriculum with objectives, activities, and resources (speakers, on-site visits, audio visuals, books, and kits) for each subject area covered. Emphasizing career awareness, each section's objectives deal with the world of work and character development. Subject areas for the kindergarten level cover family, community, and self. In the first grade, expanding emphases are applied to country, school, families and community, map and globe use, transportation, Washington, D.C., and great Americans. Grade two stresses neighborhood interdependence, and national communities (historical, military, apple growing, forest growing, steel making, and rural). The making of America and the metropolitan community are topics treated in grade three, while agriculture and the land, industry and man, and mass production are studied in grade four. Four world views (ancient, Greek and Roman, medieval, and Middle East) are considered in fifth grade, while western expansion, new world and Eurasian cultures, the industrial revolution, and Latin America are examined at the sixth grade level. Consumer economics is discussed at appropriate complexity levels beginning with second grade. Not all resource information is complete. Three brief appendixes list additional activities and two forms. (MDW)
