Teaching Module for Expanding Occupational Awareness of Preschool, Second, and Fourth Grade Children.
Marotz-Baden, Ramona; Riley, Pamela
These three modular units for preschool children (eight-week unit), grade 2 (nine-week unit), and grade 4 (six-week unit) were developed to facilitate career education by reducing sex-role stereotyping of occupations. (Final progress report of the project is available as CE 024 425.) Within each unit an outline for each week's activities details objectives, materials needed, and procedures. Worksheets designed to be mounted in student notebooks are provided for grades 2 and 4. The unit for preschool children emphasizes the development of curiosity about and interest in an occupation. The unit outline, which is designed for two lessons per week, is as follows: introduction to occupational clusters (week 1); session 1, flannel board and Me Doll activities, and session 2, socio/dramatic play, (weeks 2-7); and review (week 8). Emphasizing interest and ability, not sex or race, as critical factors in career choice, the grade 2 unit contains thirty-six (four per week) group and individual activities in seven occupational clusters: consumer and homemaking, construction, health occupations, public service, transportation, communications and media, and business and office occupations. The grade 4 unit is based on five sessions per week on these topics: Introduction to the Career Cluster Concept, Self and Family Awareness Attitudes, Interdependancy of Occupations, Girls Can! Boys Can! ((Educational Preparation for Employment)), and game review. (Brief sections on module revisions are included.) (YLB)
