Teachers' Manual for Career Education: Instilling Readiness for Decision-Making.
La Guardia Community Coll., Long Island City, NY.
The manual contains over eighty career education lesson plans which are aimed at instilling readiness for decision making in first and fifth grade students. The lessons are intended to go beyond the provision of occupational information and to focus on teaching students how to gather, evaluate, and integrate information. Lesson plans are keyed to eight decision making questions. The expected outcome of the exercises is that the child will ask himself one or more questions; for example, he may ask, "What do I like?"; "What do I want?"; and/or "When do I not have a choice?" Lesson plans are coded according to grade level of the activity, the objective it meets, and the activity itself. Several first grade lesson titles are "If I Had a Million,""Things I Like," and "Kerchiefs"; several fifth grade lesson titles are "Sports,""Music," and "Money." Objectives and procedures are included for each lesson. Some lessons employ materials (such as cartoons, etc.), and some use playlets or stories. For example, the suggested procedure in "If I Had a Million" is to have the children act out a playlet designed to lead to an awareness of preferences and a discussion of those preferences. (CSS)
