Design, Development, and Evaluation of Career Education Materials for Adult Farmworkers with Limited English-Speaking Ability Who Return to Formal Education. Final Report, Volume II - Curriculum Guide and Career Education Manual, Part I.
Atkinson, Donald R.
This document contains the curriculum guide and the first seven monographs of the career education manual which was developed to assist the instructor in presenting a career-awareness course to adult, limited-English-speaking farmworkers. (The last nine monographs of the career education manual are found in CE 024 590.) The curriculum guide is divided into three sections. The first section is composed of four introductory units designed to enhance student self-awareness; the second section is composed of fifteen career cluster units intended to acquaint the student with information about career areas. Unit objectives, content information, and motivational exercises are included with each unit. The third section includes instructor notes keyed to each unit. The career education manual contains career monographs written at the 5th-grade reading level in both English and Spanish to facilitate comprehension for persons with limited reading ability. The seven monographs included in this document provide information on occupations in the areas of agriculture, manufacturing, marketing/distribution, consumer/homemaking, public service, and personal service. The guide and the career education manual have been used successfully with persons aged seventeen and upward during 1978-79 at two cooperating sites in California. (See CE 024 588 for final project report.) (BM)
