Unipac: Why People Work.
This booklet contains learning activities to assist students in understanding why people work and in choosing an occupation to match their career goals. Its eight unipacs (or units) require the students to (1) choose among alternative life styles, occupations, and goals and explain their preferences; (2) develop a system of personal value priorities; (3) determine the importance of different values, such as happiness, security, and wisdom, in their lives and evaluate their career goals in terms of these values; (4) identify different roles in the working world; (5) assess external influences on career choice; (6) envision their future job roles in five, ten, and twenty years; (7) explore the purposes of work; and (8) discover the factors that affect work production. The types of activities include taking multiple-choice tests, participating in class discussions, compiling lists and prioritizing them, constructing questionnaires for community surveys and analyzing the results, writing papers, conducting experiments, and meeting with school counselors. As they complete the lessons, the students are asked to keep their papers and results in a career notebook. For each unipac the major goal is stated as well as the behavioral objectives. Special materials are noted when needed. (ELG)
