This second of two parts presents learning activities for four occupational clusters of a ninth-grade cluster program. It contains theory and hands-on activities that explore the occupational requirements and working environment of these areas to help students make intelligent decisions of possible career choices based on levels of interest and ability. The necessary mathematics, applied science, and English are included as related subject areas. The four occupational clusters and (at least) six basic occupational areas within each occupational field included here are (1) health occupations (child care assistant, medical assistant, dental assistant, nurse, hospital technician, therapist/inhalation/occupational/physical), (2) mechanical occupations (air conditioning and refrigeration, plastics worker, automotive trades worker, plumber/heating worker, mechanical electrical repairer, welder/metal worker), (3) service occupations (beautician, hospitality manager, cook/baker, hotel/motel maintenance worker, dressmaker/fashion designer, upholsterer), and (4) technical occupations (automotive technician, architectural and machine draftsperson, communications technician, electronics technician, computer technician, operating technician). Each cluster lists goals and objectives and then is divided into the occupations. Each occupation section contains a chart listing related learning activities; student activities; tools, equipment, materials; time required; and evaluation. The learning activities follow. (YLB)
