State Fair Community Coll., Sedalia, MO.
The revised guide, prepared to supplement the existing curriculum, suggests activities related to the three student goals: (1) to develop an awareness of who he/she is, and, through effective decision making, what he/she can become; (2) to become aware of the interrelationships of society with his/her school, community, family, work, and leisure; and (3) to become aware of the many facets of the world of work. A definition of career education and an outline of 10 junior high career education concepts open the document and are followed by steps for study. Suggested activities and ideas are presented for the following four subject areas and their related units: English (93 pages), home economics (42 pages), social studies (74 pages), and industrial arts (18 pages). Objectives, teaching procedures, and resources and materials are presented for each unit. A 14-page list of suggested local field trip sites and guest speakers is included. (BP)
