Career Action Pack.
Blum, Robert E.; Raymond, Carolyn D.
One of five McDonald's Action Packs, these instructional materials for ninth and tenth graders (and more able sixth and seventh graders) have incorporated ideas around three career development goals--subject relevance, career awareness, and self-awareness. The action pack contains six units--three units each in the subject areas of language arts and social studies--in an interdisciplinary approach. Following an introduction that gives suggestions for use of community resources, these six units are presented: journalism, radio, telephone, community geography, municipal government, and local laws. The format for each unit is as follows: (1) introduction, which highlights career development goals and their importance; (2) exploration activity, which emphasizes the career awareness goal through a community-learning approach and includes student objectives and directions; (3) application activity, which emphasizes subject relevance by student application of selected skills, knowledge, and/or attitudes and includes student objectives, directions, and ideas for extensions; and (4) extensions or ways to enrich the material. Student activity sheets suitable for reproduction are provided for each unit. (YLB)
