Careers Calling. A Career Education Instructional Unit (Developmental Draft). Sixth Grade.
Johnson, W. Julius
The developmental unit, intended to become part of a total K-12 career education curriculum, is designed for use at the sixth grade level. It follows an interdisciplinary approach to subject matter, with the primary focus in the social studies area. Providing approximately 20-25 hours of instruction, the unit lends itself to the self-contained classroom or a team teaching situation. The student is shown that different occupations require different competencies, appeal to different personalities, and offer different benefits. The learner identifies and relates his major area of interest to various occupations. Preceding the main body of each of the 10 lessons are the concepts, estimated time, vocabulary, required resources, and instructor preparation tasks. Prepared worksheets enable the instructor to make a transparency or ditto master or use a page of the unit with the opaque projector. Instructor strategies for discussion, role playing, speakers, and field trips are presented in the appendix along with a list of supplementary materials. A brief bibliography is also included. (NJ)
