Career Development Exemplary Project. The First Draft of a Curriculum Guide for Grade Nine.
Ailer, Audrey J.; And Others
The guide represents an effort to implement the first phase of an exploration of careers curriculum designed to provide in-depth exploration of jobs previously surveyed by students in the seventh and eighth grade career awareness phase of the program. The following three units are included for each of 11 subject areas: an awareness unit, 4 to 9 weeks in lenth, through which the student takes another look at himself and at the subject he is studying in terms of its relevancy to the 10 identified clusters of career opportunities; a communications unit, 9 to 14 weeks in length, during which the student has an opportunity to focus on what each subject contributes to his acquisition of communication skills necessary for success in each cluster of career opportunities; and an exploration unit (one semester in length) which provides each student an opportunity to assume a number of the job roles for which a particular subject prepares him. Each of the three types of units contains objectives, activities, materials and resource lists, and suggested evaluation measures. The subject areas covered in the units are art, business, electronics, English, graphic communications, home economics, mathematics, music, science, social studies, and woodworking. (Author/MS)
