Helping People Have Fun.
The book, written for intermediate grade students, describes leisure time occupations in a format that can be used for independent study or as a supplement to classroom instruction. The specific careers described and illustrated are grouped into seven general categories: food service, conservation, lodging, outdoors, entertainment and sports, travel, and related fields. An introductory page for each category provides general information on the career group and a list of vocabulary words with an asterisk indicating those defined in the four-page glossary. Descriptions of job activities, skills and educational background required, hours and pay basis, and where to write for more information are given for each occupation. Directions for using the book are written for the student. A three-page list of books, tapes, films, and filmstrips and a page of teaching suggestions are also included. (MS)
