The Environment Cluster. Career Orientation Series.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Vocational Education.
Developed to provide seventh and eighth grade students information about careers in the environment occupational cluster, this booklet may be used to integrate career information with various subject areas. (It is one of several student booklets developed for use in the Ohio Career Orientation Program at grades 7 and 8 to assist students in making tentative career decisions for exploration activities in grades 9 and 10.) Several jobs are listed with brief one- or two-sentence descriptions in each of five career areas in the cluster: (1) life science, (2) physical science, (3) education and technology (health technologists and planners and managers), (4) environmental implementation, and (5) environmental application. A closer look at seven specific careers is provided through brief case studies of one individual working in each job: what he does and how he prepared himself. These jobs are air pollution inspector, waste water analyst, environmental health technician, public health sanitarian, private industry sanitarian, interpretive naturalist, and assistant urban planner. Brief exploration activities are suggested through which students would learn more about each job. A chart is provided with notes on how various school subjects (mathematics, English, science, social science, industrial arts, physical education, music, art, and home economics) are related to the environment cluster careers. A list of qualities needed for environment careers and a list of sources for additional career information (professional associations and specific government bulletins) are included along with a vocabulary list. Illustrated with drawings and photographs. (JT)
