Petersburg Public Schools, VA.
This second of a 3-volume curriculum guide covering Grades 1-9 contains four master units which incorporate career education concepts into the existing curriculum for Grades 5-8. Focusing on careers in the city, state, and nation, the units for Grades 5 and 6 continue the career awareness activities developed for the primary grades. Activities in the career orientation and exploration unit for Grade 7 are grouped by subject areas: Reading, language arts, social studies, and mathematics. The program for eighth grade social studies explores various occupational clusters through seven subunits: The individual, prejudice, elections, war, government, democracy, and technology. The general format for each unit includes an introduction, educational goals, career education concepts, information (behavioral) objectives, instructional procedures, suggested student outcomes, evaluation methods, and a bibliography. The instructional procedures are activities and experiences designed to achieve the stated goals and objectives. For each activity, the necessary resource materials are listed. A bibliography of career education materials (46 pages) completes the document. Entries are arranged alphabetically by type of material and include articles, books, and pamphlets. The information provided for pamphlets, which constitute the largest number of references, is the title and availability. (Author/RG)
