This teaching unit, Professional Sports, is one of a series of curriculum guides developed by Project CHOICE (Children Have Options in Career Education) to provide the classroom teacher with a source of career-related activities linking 5th and 6th grade elementary classroom experiences with the world of work. These lessons about occupations in professional sports give sports terminology and discuss the body training, mental skills, and sportsmanship necessary to become a professional athlete. Related jobs that make professional athletics possible are also discussed. An introductory section gives the rationale for the unit, goals, performance objectives, entry-level assessment, and evaluation. A list of suggested instructional materials, such as films, filmstrips, books. community resources, and art supplies, is included in this section. Each lesson contains a statement of purpose, materials needed for the lesson, an introductory statement, class activities, and a summary activity. Written materials (such as worksheets, surveys, and task cards) are included where feasible. (MEK)
