A Staff Development Manual for Career Education. Vol. 1: Elementary Level.
Jenks, Houston C., Ed.
The first section of the manual for developing career education in existing Louisiana elementary school programs is an introduction to the concept and rationale of career education and to the roles of educators and parents in infusing career education into the curriculum. Section 2 discusses the availability and use of career education materials, and section 3 provides guidelines and suggested topics for guest speakers and field trips. Section 4, composing the bulk of the document, consists of unit plans covering: school helpers (K-1), whose hat is this? (grades 2-3), self-awareness (grades 4-6), communication (grade 5), work tasks and habits (grades 1-6), foods and nutrition (grade 6), the process of photosynthesis (grade 6), let's build a house (grades 3-6), people and their work (grades 1-2), and dental health workers and the law (grades 3-4). Each unit plan lists subject areas, goals, concepts, objectives, activities, resources, and evaluation criteria. The unit on dental health workers also includes the script for a one-act-play, "The Toothache Mystery: The Trial of the Dental Health Six." Two appendixes include an outline of the 15 job clusters and 21 job cluster hidden word puzzles. (JR)
