The instructional unit, field-tested in Arizona, is intended to become an integral part of a total K-12 career education curriculum. Six lessons are designed to assist learners in understanding how present experiences relate to past and future ones by comparing the cultures of Europeans in New England, and of Spanish soldiers and Indians in the Southwest, in the 1600's, with contemporary American culture. Dependency on products and interdependency among workers are emphasized. The lessons are broken down into several parts; before the main body of the lesson is described, key items are presented: the concepts, estimated lesson-time, the vocabulary, required resources, and instructor-preparation tasks. Instructor procedures are presented in three sections: the introduction, which provides continuity within the unit; the tasks, which provides a detailed description of the content and activities used to deliver the specified outcomes; and the summary, which provides closure and a culminating activity. Many instructional resources, designed to require minimal operation time, are included in the lessons. The unit contains several types of instructional strategies: demonstration, discussion, and questioning. Instructor guides for these strategies are appended, with specific references given in the lessons. Supplemental reading material is also appended. (Author/AJ)
