Smith, Vella Rose B.
The sixth grade learn-to-earn field tested unit was designed to develop career awareness and employability skills. The purpose is to help the learner understand the tasks performed in the home setting as related to the interest, aptitude, and training of the individuals performing these tasks. The lesson topics are: ways to earn money; personal characteristics valued by most employers; considerations other than personal characteristics; introduction to advertising one's services and advertising by telephone, personal contact, and ads; and job selection and preparation. An introduction for the instructor planning to teach the unit includes a unit content/strategy profile and a resource profile. The unit takes 12 hours and includes large and small group and individual activities. The five lessons are presented under the headings of: concept, performance objective, estimated time, new vocabulary introduced, resources required, instructor preparation tasks, instructional procedures (introduction, tasks, summary), assessment procedures and tools, and worksheets. An instructional strategy guide covering discussions, guest speakers, role-playing, and storytelling; a list of supplementary resources; and a six-item bibliography are appended. (BP)
