Teacher's Guide to Elementary INFOE.
Cameron, Walter A.
The elementary INFOE (Information Needed For Occupational Exploration) program is a means of adding career concepts and an occupational information system to a K-14 career information program. The teacher's guide, designed for the elementary grades (4-6), contains units covering introductory activities to 15 career clusters and general information on job titles, and utilizes cluster interest testing. A summary of the pilot study outlines the objectives, methods, data source, conclusions, and recommendations. The elementary INFOE materials and guidelines for their use are described. Career concept definitions, general suggestions, and a reference list complete the first section. In the second section, each unit includes instructions for the teacher, brief descriptions for five selected career clusters and their job families, and suggested individual and group learning activities. The fourth grade examines agri-business and natural resources, business and office, communications and media, construction, and consumer and homemaking clusters. The environment, fine arts and humanities, health, hospitality and recreation, and manufacturing clusters are presented in grade five. For the sixth grade, marine science, marketing and distribution, personal services, public services, and transportation are examined. The career clusters and job titles, interest inventories, and vocabulary for each cluster are appended. (JB)
