Career Education in the Social Studies.
Hahn, Carole L., Ed.
The handbook provides lessons in career education which may be infused into the social studies curriculum in grades K-12. Preceding the lessons, the document describes how the four components of the National Council for the Social Studies Curriculum Guidelines relate to career education. These components are knowledge, abilities, valuing, and social participation. Specific subject areas of anthropology, sociology, history, economics, geography, political science, U.S. and world history, government, and general social studies are discussed. Elementary level lessons include studies of community workers, parents' careers, assembly lines, and house designing. Middle school and middle/high school activities cover using the newspaper, reading maps, role playing, basic research skills in career education, values clarification, applying and interviewing for jobs, and personal finance. High school lessons include publishing a newspaper, examining the impact of underemployment through role play, a tax information and assistance project, investigation of women in the job market, labor-management negotiations, and changing work values. Lessons are outlined according to components, objectives, procedures, and follow-up activities. Suggestions are made as to courses and grade levels, but with slight modification the lessons are appropriate to other topics and grades. An annotated bibliography relevant to career education and definitions of basic career education terms are included. (KC)
