Career Related Science Units. Teacher Edition.
Zupfer, John; And Others
The document is comprised of 91 career-related science modules for junior high school students, indexed by the learning activity's title and cross-referenced by occupation. The modules are intended for use in an individualized science program, either as an ongoing curriculum supplement or as a discrete unit. Integrated with the presentation of scientific theory, knowledge, and skills are information on applications in work settings and on employment opportunities in science and other fields. Problem-solving and science learnings relevant to students' practical, daily needs are emphasized. The module format, an illustrated worksheet, includes: title, cluster, occupation, prerequisites, objectives, equipment, procedure, data and results, evaluation, and teacher supplement. Most of the modules were designed to be completed during a 50-minute period, with equipment which can be stored in a small container. An introduction orieints the science teacher to career education concepts and objectives, relates the goals and objectives of the career-science program, and specifies the science processes and skills which are developed in the modules. Alternative methods for using the modules are suggested, and a student introduction is provided. The modules are heavily biased toward traditional sex roles; no racial minorities are pictured in the illustrations. (Author/AJ)
