Careers. A Districtwide, School Based Approach.
Walkenshaw, Sara, Comp.
The career education materials and concepts in this collection were developed or adapted from other sources by participants in a districtwide junior high career education project piloted in Kansas City, Missouri. Early portions define career education and suggest roles and functions for the collaborative efforts of all who are involved in the teaching/learning process. Sections are also devoted to career education goals and teaching points, evaluation, and teaching methods for both classroom activities and world-of-work exploration. There is a small section on identifying bias and stereotyping and a unit on life planning. The major portion of the guide consists of career education infusion strategies in three categories: (1) general, which covers sixty broad topics such as personal inventory, job interview, career plans, etc., (2) core subject, which offers sixty sets of materials and aids for teachers of social studies, English, science, math, and reading, and (3) other, which includes materials on individualized instruction units, vocal music, child care, etc. The infusion strategies sections include objectives, descriptions, and resource lists for each activity along with supplementary worksheets and exercises. Career education bulletin board ideas and sample applications are appended. (PV)
