Peterson, Marla; And Others
One of a series of guides developed under the K-6 Teacher and Counselor Competencies in Career Education Program, this guide contains a section for each of the Grades 5-6 levels (Fifth Experience Level and Sixth Experience Level), each encompassing the two career education components: Subject Matter Areas (to reinforce science, language arts, math, and social studies concepts) and Career Development Areas (with both developmental and interacting dimensions). Each experience level section contains eight infusion strategies (teaching units which fuse career development and subject matter concepts) based on the career developmental dimensions: Coping behaviors (two strategies), decision making (two strategies), lifestyle (one strategy), and self development (three strategies). (Separate teaching units are not included for the interacting dimensions; they are integrated into the suggested activities for the developmental dimensions). Each infusion strategy contains career development concepts, teacher goals, vocabulary, performance objectives, listings of subject matter concepts used, preplanning suggestions, student activities, student pages, reference to related materials, and job descriptions of the occupations presented. Cross indexing is provided so that infusion strategies may be located by occupational theme, subject matter topics, or career development area. (JT)
