Exploration of Careers in Transportation. Teacher's Guide.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Vocational Education.
One of a series devoted to career education in transportation, this guide, which is intended for use by teachers in grades 9-10, presents a program for the exploration of existing and emerging careers in transportation. Section I gives an introduction to career education and its four progressive phases: career awareness, orientation, exploration, and preparation. Section II stresses the use of resource materials for occupational information on transportation careers. Section III explains the roles of the educational, family, and industrial participants in a career exploration program. Section IV outlines the program plan which is designed as an individualized and performance-based instructional system. Eleven objectives are identified for the program: (1) communication skills, (2) transportation's contribution to society, (3) changing employment, (4) job operations, (5) employment outlook for specific fields, (6) skills required, (7) job descriptions, (8) career ladders, (9) life styles, (10) entry level requirements, and (11) career planning. The learning activities necessary to achieve these objectives are classified as vicarious, simulation, or experiential, and the appropriate type is discussed for each objective. (A separate student manual, CE 013 880, contains the activity worksheets.) For the teacher, evaluation of the program is emphasized as the concluding step in the plan. Section V provides a bibliography of resource materials available on transportation, including books, journals, government publications, and films. (ELG)
