A Guideline for Career Awareness Programs for the Elementary Schools: Part 3, What About Vocational Education? Revised.
Washington Office of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Olympia.; Washington State Coordinating Council for Occupational Education, Olympia.
The guide was designed to assist those involved in developing a career awareness program for the elementary grades (kindergarten through six). It presents basic elements of program planning and suggested approaches or activities. Selection of activities is discussed in a section of the guide which describes general types of activities for lower, middle, and upper elementary grades grouped into three classifications: self-perception, integration of occupational information into the curriculum, and integration of occupational information into cocurricular activities. Three major program goals are identified: exploration and assessment of personal attitudes and interests, examination of work roles and occupational possiblities, and development of understandings of basic skills related to effective employment. These goals are listed with concepts which are followed by objectives for each grade level. Based on these goals and concepts, suggested learning activities are presented by grade level according to a format which includes: the goal, general concept, objectives, suggested subject area, the activity, learner expectations, and notes to the teacher. Appended is a five-page resource list of books and audiovisual aids which includes grade level, program goal, and curriculum area designations for each item. (Author/MS)
