Career Education Curriculum Guide Hume R-VIII School.
Missouri State Dept. of Elementary and Secondary Education, Jefferson City.
The book sketches the career education concepts and learning activities which have been developed for inclusion in the academic curriculum of one Missouri school, from kindergarten through secondary grades. Several learning activities are suggested for each elementary grade level. The primary-level activities are intended to increase students' awareness of self and others; the intermediate-level activities emphasize awareness of occupations. Two page special education and remedial reading career education guides supplement recommended commercial materials by indicating very briefly, in the former, learning activities related to 10 occupational clusters; in the latter, activities related to farming and home-making. The section intended for use by junior high and high school teachers is organized by academic or vocational education subject, with several career-related lesson suggestions offered for each. It assumes that only female students will be taking certain sections of the home economics curriculum. The concluding section lists the career education resources available to teachers in the school which produced the career education guide. The book also contains an outline of the career education responsibilities of the guidance counselor at each grade level from 7 to 12 and an overview of the vocational curriculum available in the area vocational-technical school.
