Career Education: Learning with a Purpose. Junior High 7-9. Vol. 2. Career Exploration, Career Information, Field Trip Sites and Guest Speakers.
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 present for the following two subject areas and their related units: career exploration (credit, clerical concepts, social security, job classification, economics, advertising, and work attitudes) and career information (know yourself, use of occupational information, and the world of work emphasizing job application procedures). Objectives, teaching procedures, and resource materials are presented for each unit. In addition, supplemental lesson plans, tests, worksheets, career information handouts, and selected readings are provided. A 14-page list of suggested local field trip sites and guest speakers is included. (BP)
