Native American Career Education Unit. Getting Ready for Jobs.
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 acquaint Indian junior high school students with educational and training requirements for different jobs and provide enough data so that students can extrapolate the general requirements for different types of jobs. The four activities involve the related subject areas of English/composition, mathematics, and social studies. In the unit, students play games and solve a picture puzzle by reading and manipulating data on educational and training requirements for different jobs, study want ads in real and imaginary newspapers, match given jobs with characteristics and skills of real or imaginary people, and consider mid-career decisions and how personal values and emotional needs can affect such decisions. 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)
