WORK-ED. (World of Related Knowledge and Educational Development). A Curriculum Manual for Teachers--Volume II.
Hackettstown High School, NJ.
This volume is the second of a two-volume curriculum manual (see also ED 147 486) for teachers which contains materials designed for use in implementing the World of Related Knowledge and Educational Development (WORK-ED) program. (This program is a career education course for ninth graders developed to enable students who have not chosen the traditional college-prep high school course to make career choices based on occupational information and ability to select goals. It is a guidance-based program incorporating basic skills, human values, and career awareness.) Divided into seven chapters, this manual presents units of study in basic communication skills and various career clusters. The units are designed to be implemented in a daily two-period course and include objectives, activities, time lines, resources, duplication materials, and evaluation procedures. The seven chapters cover (1) listening skills, (2) reading skills, (3) consumer education, (4) introduction to drafting, (5) graphic technology, (6) math careers, and (7) careers in music. An administrator's manual (ED 147 485), teacher training manual (CE 018 798), and a project report (ED 150 452) are also available. (BM)
