The World of Work: Where's It At?
The trainer-directed manual describes a 45-minute school staff orientation session of not more than 36 participants in which the potential of the classroom for teaching the interdependence of society as revelaed through the world of work is explored. The purpose, activities, outcomes duration, setting, and resources needed are stated. The script for the session is with procedures and directions supplied. Working in groups of six or less, participants list the occupations of family members and consider their evident interdependence. Total group interdependence is determined, and parental information request forms are completed. A career tree with 12 occupational areas is constructed, and participants place parental information forms in the proper occupational areas on the tree. Overlays and activities supplement the discussion and include a graduated classifying diagram, occupational cluster definitions, participant's occupational and family information forms, and worker trait components. These are appended along with evaluation and postsession reactions forms. Developed by the Mesa Public Schools, the program is in its prepilot stage and is subject to revision. (LH)
