Consumer and Homemaking 5-6. Manual for Career Education.
Knox County Schools, Knoxville, TN.
Objectives of the SPICE (School Programs in Career Education) curriculum guides are concerned with the areas of self-concept, dignity of work, constant change in the world of work, and relevance of school to work. The career education curriculum in the volume presents units which may be taught as separate subjects, incorporated into all areas of the existing curriculum, or used as the total curriculum, with texts as references. Each unit contains suggested assignments and activities in math, language arts, science, and art. The consumer and homemaking cluster for grades 5 and 6 offers opportunities for learning about jobs by involving the students in activities that can be reproduced or simulated in the classroom. It also stresses pre-occupational learning, with job interviewing simulation. A 31-page appendix provides a booklist, instructional materials, and other teaching suggestions. (Author/MF)
