Guide to Junior High INFOE.
Cameron, Walter A., Comp.; And Others
The junior high INFOE (Information Needed For Occupational Exploration--In Depth) program adds career concepts and an occupational information system to a K-14 career information program. The guide, designed for grades 7-9, contains units covering introductory activities and information on careers and job titles for 8 of the 15 career clusters. A proposed pilot study and evaluation and the description of the overall K-14 program are discussed. The seventh grade clusters are agri-business and natural resources, business and office, communications and media, and construction. Eighth grade students study health, marketing and distribution, public services, and transportation. Ninth grade students review all eight clusters. The key to the INFOE system is the INFOEscript, a five-page career brief written for each job title that is reproduced on microfilm aperture cards. General suggestions for the implementation of INFOE and the directions for using the materials for each grade level are presented. Learning activities have been developed for various subject areas. The alphabetical listing and descriptive information on vocational programs, interest inventories for the three grades, inventories of career clusters and job titles for both seventh and eighth grades, and word jumbles and crossword puzzles for the three grades are appended.
