Achieving Career Awareness.
Beattie, Mary A.
The document provides an example of the integration of career awareness into a half-year elective English course at the senior high school level. The project was designed to increase: knowledge of careers in general and specifically in the Boothbay Harbor, Maine area; awareness of how personal characteristics relate to job requirements, skill, and interest in performing a particular job; awareness of where to obtain printed material about job opportunities and related statistics; and knowledge and confidence in getting a job. Included in the guide are ideas for implementing a career awareness project, examples of assignments and exercises, a list of places visited and teaching aids purchased, reactions of the students, and recommendations for future projects.
