Campbell, Carol Gorby
Most of the document is a teacher's guide for an eighth grade course in career education, in use at Cal Young Junior High School, Eugene, Oregon, emphasizing small group work. The five main parts of the course are: (1) career corner, a multimedia career information center for student job studies, (2) life career, a life planning simulation game, (3) self-awareness learning package for self-evaluation of interests, attitudes, abilities, and personality, (4) study of a local business, and (5) consumer economics, emphasizing buying an automobile and grocery shopping. The guide contains general objectives for the course. Specific objectives, background information, student activities, worksheets, and other learning materials are included for each unit. Activities can be adapted for use with the entire class. The guide is one product of a project to provide a comprehensive, formal career education program to seventh and eighth grade students through a learning center program utilizing an integrated approach. The final report of the project which involved 483 students and 20 staff members is included. The educational setting, procedures, outcomes, and recommendations of the two-year effort are summarized. An evaluation of the project's objectives indicates that the majority were met fully or partially. (MS)
