Coos County Careers in Fishing: Unit F#6 Grade 8. Project COULD: Career Orientation Utilizing Language Development.
Coos County Intermediate Education District, North Bend, OR.
Project COULD (Career Orientation Utilizing Language Development) was developed as a means of building skills, knowledges, and attitudes on elementary children's previously acquired backgrounds. Children learn to speak the grammar and vocabulary characteristic of the language heard most frequently at home and in the immediate environment. A series of units of instruction were developed from the concepts and vocabulary of the industries indigenous to Coos County (Oregon). Each unit of the instructional guide is designed to promote vocational awareness, exploration, and language development. The eight-week unit focuses on employment opportunities, occupational interests, job application steps, the job interview, and employment vocabulary. Intended for grade 8, it is divided into eight sections: (1) a summary; (2) a unit outline; (3) project goals; (4) performance objectives; (5) vocabulary; (6) suggested learning activities (games, puzzles, and evaluation and followup activities); (7) lists of resource persons and materials (audiovisual and print media) and outlines for use by the resource person (suggestions and discussion topics); and (8) background information, suggested teacher reading, and a job description for an employment person.
