Career Orientation and Exploration: Lesson Plans for Grades Eight and Nine.
Doniphan R-1 School District, MO.
Nineteen units of lesson plans for teaching career orientation and exploration to students in grades 8 and 9 stress positive attitudes, self-knowledge, occupational information, and basic career skills; topics range from world-of-work orientation, self-appraisal, and occupational clusters to tentative career choice, job application, and career advancement. Lesson plans designed to achieve a unit's objectives are presented in brief outlines which sometimes suggest teaching methods and student activities and sometimes offer only a list of concepts or facts to be developed. Some units include a list of resources and supplementary projects; in others, the resources, such as filmstrips, are incorporated into the lesson plans. In some units, no resources are mentioned. Learning activities range from role playing, guest speakers, and panel discussions to chanting verses, composing slogans, and making visual aids to emphasize positive thinking; lecture, discussion, and paper-and-pencil exercises are most often prescribed, however. Personality traits of friendliness, neatness, and loyalty are stressed. The document includes copious supplementary materials ranging from elementary to moderately sophisticated, such as visual aids and self-tests, and hand-outs which include fact sheets and personal inventories and checklists. Vocabulary and spelling lists and pre- and post-tests are appended. (AJ)
