Career Education - Foreign Languages: Supplement No. 1. (Classroom Exercises for French and Spanish) Levels I-III (7-12).
Kennedy, Dora F.; And Others
This supplement to the previous Prince George's County Schools Career Education Guide -- Foreign Languages is intended to help teachers accomplish the purpose of the Guide, which is to re-orient the material of lessons in basic texts toward career education concepts, when applicable. The intrinsic cultural goals of foreign language education should be continually reflected, and the career education focus contributes another dimension to the material to be learned. The guide urges interdisciplinary cooperation between foreign language instructors and other teachers and should help teachers in all disciplines to expand students' awareness of foreign languages and their importance in career education. Whereas the Guide itself documents the possible relationship of each French and Spanish textbook unit to career education, this supplement presents actual exercises for French and Spanish which may be substituted for specific exercises in the texts, or may be used to complement such exercises. For both French and Spanish: (1) a number of units were selected from certain basic texts; (2) certain exercises in the units were chosen for re-orientation without changing the grammatical structures to be drilled, and a few paragraphs were re-written with a career education focus; (3) supplementary vocabulary is provided for occupational names; and (4) classroom activities are suggested after each unit.
