"Career Education" Junior High School Style: "Mini Course" for Eighth Grade.
Alpine School District, American Fork, UT.
The Alpine School District in American Fork, Utah is administering a career education program designed to provide positive experiences (real and simulated) to demonstrate to students that career choices are contributing factors to one's life style (economic, recreational, and social). The three week career education mini-course for eighth grade reviews some of the seventh grade curriculum and encourages students to do additional thinking and searching in the area of careers. It provides teachers with various activities that are most suited to their teaching objectives and class profile. The teacher-developed unit is divided into six phases: a unit introduction (one day); exploring careers (seven days); choosing a career (5 days); a simulation game, "Selling the School" (four-seven days); evaluation and curriculum activities (two days); and resource information. The approximate teaching time, unit objectives, ideas to be learned and evaluated are presented for each phase. Accompanying each unit are various activities emphasizing student involvement through learning games, role playing, and simulation experiences. (BP)
