The Pulaski Community Schools have developed a career education curriculum that involves seventh and eighth graders in a year-long study of health, industrial arts, and business education. The Health Education Curriculum outlines 10 basic concepts and areas of study: social living, mental health, nutrition, tobacco, alcohol, drugs, hygiene, physical fitness, consumer health, and birth/aging process/death. Health Careers lists jobs in these areas and presents instructions for classroom activities, with an outline of elements to be studied in terms of each career area given. The Business Education Curriculum presents separate outlines for each grade with a two-page guide regarding specific texts and audiovisual aids not identified in full. Public service, communications and media, marketing and distribution, transportation, and business and office are covered in the seventh grade curriculum outline; job orientation and a review of clusters studied in seventh grade are in the eighth grade outline. The Industrial Arts Curriculum outlines separate curricula for each grade, with a two-page guide regarding a specific text, Exploring. The seventh grade outline covers natural resources, environmental, marine science, manufacturing, agri-business, transportation, construction, and a sample unit on agri-business, with the eighth grade curriculum adding a mini course in careers.
