The guide is one of a series developed in a pilot project to integrate career education concepts with subject matter in secondary grades. The units are designed to reveal career orientation aspects of traditional topics within five major subject areas: English, social studies, mathematics, science, and health and physical education. The lesson plans are presented in brief outline form, but activities range from those of short duration to several weeks. All provide broad objectives, performance objectives, lesson procedures, and materials and resources in all media. The units in English directed to grades 8-12 cover: dangerous careers, social work, law, communications occupations, psychology, unusual occupations, writing, government, history of occupations, job seeking, sales, self-awareness, medicine, and teaching the blind and deaf.
