Ideas for Activities Designed to Combine Career Development with Subject Matter Instruction.
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing.
The organization of the ideas for career education activities is based on four components of career development; these form the four sections of the book: (1) self-awareness and assessment, (2) career awareness and exploration, (3) career decision making, and (4) career planning and placement. The book is further divided into elementary and secondary education sections, and an easy access guide for each section provides a grid listing 10 subject matter areas and the four career development components. All activity ideas relevant to a given career development component and appropriate to a given subject area appear by number in the grid matrixes. Each activity idea in the book has six elements: (1) title; (2) subject matter content area/s; (3) purpose, two statements, one pertaining to the subject matter area and one to a career development performance goal; (4) primary activity, which contains the grade group designation and the major steps for carrying out the activity, presented to stimulate the teacher's thinking in his/her development of detailed instructional plans; (5) specification of materials; and (6) variations, which expand or contract on the primary activity so that teachers may develop applications for any grade groups.
