Native American Career Education Unit. Putting It All Together.
Far West Lab. for Educational Research and Development, San Francisco, CA.
One of twelve instructional units in the Native American Career Education (NACE) program, this unit is intended to introduce Indian junior high school students to the idea that in both traditional and contemporary societies, careers can be divided into clusters according to common features in the jobs performed. In six activities students consider how their own interests, values, and aptitudes might affect career choice; see how people with different jobs and interests work together to create a product; and study similarities and differences in values and job types in traditional and contemporary societies. Related subject areas are social development and economics. Each activity includes objectives, student materials, and suggestions to the teacher on how to use them. Student exercises consist of readings, questions to answer, games, simulations, project instructions, and other learning activities. Each activity is followed by suggestions for ways of extending learning and, where appropriate, additional resources are described. Student materials may be used as master copies for reproduction or as models for material development. A test designed to measure student mastery of the main objectives is included with each unit, along with an answer key. (A guide to the whole twelve-unit program is also available--CE 014 035.) (TA)
