Tri-County Teachers' Guide to Community Resources: Speakers, Field Trips, Career Interviews.
Tri-County Industry-Education-Labor Council, East Peoria, IL.
The guide to local resources was compiled by the Tri-County Industry-Education-Labor Council for teachers and guidance counselors seeking specific career education information. The resources are classified according to the 15 occupational clusters, as identified by the U.S. Office of Education, plus economic education for integration with classroom material. The guide lists: definitions of career education, the 15 occupational clusters, agencies and businesses for economic education, sequential career management tasks for kindergarten through post-high school, procedures for obtaining resource people and conducting a field trip, other services available from the Council, audiovisual materials available from the Council and other sources, a statement on the Armed Services and the world of work, and Library of Career Counseling Films and locally available films. The bulk of the document (72 pages) is a resource chart providing specific information organized by occupational clusters, about regional businesses, industries, educational institutions, and service agencies. The chart indicates the possibilities and requirements for interviews, classroom visits (location, advance notification requirements, age groups), and field trips/career visits (maximum number of students, best days/months, time of day, age groups, time length of tour, and areas/departments open to visitors).
