Radford City Schools, VA.
The guide is one of a series developed in a pilot project to integrate career education concepts with traditional subject matter and topics in elementary grades K-7 and in special education. Developed by teachers in the Radford, Virginia, schools, the units make use of resource persons from outside the school, occupational information, interviewing and reporting techniques, parent and family involvement, hands-on experiences, role playing, and field trips. All units are organized in a column format which provides an introductory motivating activity with related resources and materials. The lessons are based on content questions, which are explored by specific techniques and activities and supported by resource materials in all media. Not all data on materials are complete. For the trainable mentally retarded, the units are: clothes and sewing, food and nutrition and the school cafeteria, and home services and child care. (MDW)
