Career Education Curriculum Materials Resource Guide.
Regional Education Service Agency, Region 5, Parkersburg, WV.
A major thrust of the Regional Education Service Agency (RESA) 5 career education project has been the development and field testing of curriculum materials which can be adapted or adopted for use in the classroom setting. The project began operations on July 1, 1973 and was concluded June 30, 1976. The document represents the efforts of Region 5 professional personnel--teachers, counselors, and administrators--in developing a curriculum integrating career education with traditional school subjects. These materials represent a supplemental guide for a comprehensive approach to career education that includes inservice designs, guide for administrators, teaching modules, and group counseling sessions. Suggestions for integration of school and community resources are met through utilization of resource speakers and tours of local institutions. Teaching modules are included for primary, intermediate, junior high, and senior high school levels. Topics dealt with in the teaching modules include: (1) primary: self and others, school workers, city government workers, and postal service workers; (2) intermediate: trucking, television, department store, and weather forecasting industries; (3) junior high: environmental, music, newspaper, and construction careers; (4) senior high: job seeking skills; recreation, computer science, and public service careers; and a group guidance unit emphasizing self-awareness.
