Learning Stations: A Dynamic Approach to Career Education.
Morris, Judith L.
This curriculum guide presents career education material in the form of learning stations, which are individualized, independent skill- or content- oriented activities, that can be used by elementary school teachers to provide opportunities for pupils to use a skill or acquire an ability. Objectives, directions for completion, materials required, evaluation procedures, and, when appropriate, answer keys and illustrations are provided at each station. The 42 stations are designed for and grouped under Science and Social Studies (9), Language Arts (7), Mathematics (6), Social Values (7), and Miscellaneous (13). Introductory material indicates that (1) use of stations can stimulate growth in self-direction, self-discipline, responsibility, creativity, ability to follow directions, and social interaction; (2) use of this type of program requires the teacher to have individual weekly conferences with each pupil in order to evaluate the academic progress, plan directions for the pupil to continue learninq, and monitor progress by spot-checking, observation, informal conferences, and periodic testing; (3) all questions, instructions, and illustrations contained in this guide should be mounted on poster board. An evaluation form for the booklet and a list of references are provided. (TA)
