The Many Languages of Career Education.
Beusch, Ann A., Ed.
This brochure was developed as part of the ongoing priority in career education established by the Maryland State Board of Education. It was initially intended as an introductory resource guide for teachers, but has since been used successfully with counselors, students, parents, and members of the community. In addition to providing background material and statistics on the tremendous increase over the past twenty years in world trade, investments, and tourism, the brochure contains a chart of specific careers related to foreign languages. The chart is organized according to career clusters (service, business, clerical and sales, science and technology, outdoor, general culture, arts and entertainment) as well as educational levels ranging from "less than high school graduate" to "B.A. or above." A list of suggested teaching strategies and learning activities for classroom use is also included. Some of these activities do not require very extensive knowledge of a foreign language and are particularly suitable for exploratory programs in foreign languages at the middle or junior high school level.
