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 manufacturing area with related units on mathematics, social studies, science, and general applications. The units provide activities related to manufacturing; office management; advertising; and the baking, motor vehicle, apparel, and paper industries. Various units provide prefield trip and postfield trip information and activities. Objectives, teaching procedures, and resource materials are presented for each unit. The document concludes with a discussion of field trips and resource persons and provides a 12-page list of local field trip sites and guest speakers. (BP)
