Career Motivation Program: Grade K: Akron Public Schools.
Akron Public Schools, OH.
The goals of the Career Motivation Program in the Akron Public Schools are to provide students in grades K-6 with activity-centered experiences geared to the development of self-concepts and attitudes toward work and an appreciation of all vocations and the dignity of all workers. Career motivation is the first phase of the Career Development Program; it is based on the belief that every healthy individual is at work at something, and its final outcome is the integration of career education into the total curriculum of the schools. Career motivation activities are presented in the guide to provide teachers at the kindergarten level with suggestions for introducing career education into the curriculum. Four units are included: (1) workers at school, children work--children learn; (2) workers at school, school staff; (3) people in the family work; and (4) workers in our neighborhood. Each unit contains developmental objectives, concepts, behavioral objectives, teaching approach and pupil activities, and a list of references and resources. (Author/EC)
