Career Motivation Program: Grade 5: 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 grade 5 level with suggestions for introducing career education into the curriculum. The guide is divided into 26 units: language arts (two units); mathematics (one unit); health (six units); science (eight units); and social studies (nine units). Each unit contains: objectives, concepts, teacher approach and pupil activities, references and materials, and goal statements. (Author/EC)
