The teachers guide, for use at the levels of grades 2 and 3, provides an introduction to a wide variety of occupations. Its purpose is to expand student awareness of both goods producing occupations and service occupations within the community. It focuses on the distinction between goods and services, the concepts of occupational area and specialization, job preparation, personal needs and life styles and their relation to work, the function of work in meeting community needs, volunteer workers in the community, and finally, the influence of geographic area on occupations. Subject areas for which the materials in the guide have potential are social studies, language arts, and art. Each set of learning experiences contains a student objective, set overview, resource list, teacher-preparation tasks, learning activities, and suggestions for evaluation-summary activities. Activity-coordinated resource materials are included. (Author/NJ)
