Life Career Planning. You Can Decide. Developmental Level K-3.
Bernhardt, Edna Erickson
The teaching module is part of a set designed to help educators infuse career education concepts into the existing curriculum. The module is organized to help students on the K-3 level develop awareness of the decision-making process. The first learning sequence of the module deals primarily with basic understandings and vocabulary related to decision making. The seven sequential activities were designed to point to the learner's existing involvement in decision making, and to increase satisfaction with the outcomes of decisions. Each activity concludes with an idea for relating the objective to the world of work, to help learners experience some awareness of occupations. The second learning sequence, comprised of five activities, deals with decision-making prerequisites. Several value clarification strategies, as well as goal awareness, are presented. The concluding ideas are designed to relate the newly-acquired decision-making skills to the learner's use of leisure. Each learning sequence is introduced by objectives and an overview. Each activity is organized under the headings of: class grouping, total time required, concepts and vocabulary, learner prerequisites, educator's preparation tasks, materials/resources, skills, process, and adaptations, and contains detailed suggestions for the teacher. Instructional aids are appended. (Author/AJ)
