Career Education in the Academic Classroom.
Mangum, Garth L., Ed.; And Others
A product of a conference sponsored by the National Foundation for the Improvement of Education for classroom teachers from national associations representing seven academic areas, the book explores the various relationships between traditional academic disciplines and career education concepts. The book is designed to motivate teachers to include career education as part of their classroom techniques and content and to provide illustrations and examples to implement career education. Interspersed throughout the book are sections of various classroom activities and related occupational information. Individual chapters link career education to mathematics; English; social studies; visual arts; foreign languages; and health sciences, recreation, and physical education. Today's science teacher is faced with developing a scientifically literate population and meeting society's increased need for scientific technicians. Career education in mathematics tends to reinforce and motivate mathematical learning, and English communications skills are vital for work and leisure, while both social studies and career education have intimately related objectives. Career education in art emphasizes the broad functions of a wide variety of occupations; effective career education development in foreign languages implies close contact with guidance personnel. Reorganization of physical education into three separate disciplines has increased the opportunities for career education. (EA)
