Teacher's Guide to Career Education; Project SPAN.
Turpin, Jerry; Bell, Lorraine P.
The teacher's guide is intended for use in conjunction with 15-minute instructional television lessons featuring occupational clusters (construction, communications and media, business and office, health, industrial, transportation, public and personal services, consumer and homemaking, marketing and distribution), for fourth, fifth, and sixth grades and contains materials for classroom preparation and for followup activities. Each lesson guide includes a brief summary of the film, specifies what children should know about it, and outlines related projects. Preparation materials are vocabulary words, posters, and related math or science problems. Hands-on projects using tools and materials available to classroom teachers are emphasized; they are accompanied by detailed instructions. The guide is heavily illustrated with drawings which may also be used with a K-6 curriculum guide developed by Project SPAN (Start Planning Ahead Now or Accelerated Project for a Systems Program Approaching Non-unemployment of Vocational Students), CE 004 045.
