Career Education Activities for Subject Area Teachers. Grades 6 through 9.
Finn, Peter; Lawson, Jane
Designed as a resource book which can be used to supplement the regular curriculum by integrating one or more career education activities into regularly taught courses, this volume for grades 6 through 9 is one of a series of three manuals, one each for the elementary (grades 1-6), junior high (grades 6-9), and senior high (grades 9-l2) levels. It is divided into three sections, Introduction, Activities and Instructions, and Resources. The Introduction describes how to use the manual and briefly discusses the goals of career education. Activities and Instruction, covering the majority of the document, presents career education activities for each of eight subject areas: Social studies (10 activities), art (2 activities), health (4 activities), foreign languages (2 activities), English (10 activities), mathematics (10 activities), science (10 activities), and physical education (2 activities). Each subject area includes an activities summary, introduction, sample week's lesson plans, cross reference, and a student activities section, which is prefaced by teaching prerequisities and objectives. (The cross reference identifies by number activities which treat particular occupational issues and jobs and activities which reinforce specific subject area topics and skills.) The Resources section, under separate headings, discusses the following three aspects of career education which should be considered in order to implement the activities most productively: Teacher objectivity in career education, liaison with the community, and effective teaching methods for career education.
