Career Exploration in the Earth Sciences.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Center for Vocational and Technical Education.
The purpose of the teacher's guide is to acquaint students at the eighth grade level with occupations in the earth sciences. By identifying earth science and exploring geology, oceanography, and meteorology, students may become aware of the knowledge and skills required of workers in these occupations. Students participate in simulated work situations in which they may observe not only the functions of some earth scientists, but the interaction between people in these occupations. 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 include transparency masters, evaluation instruments, and resource and worksheets. (Author/NJ)
