Exploring Careers. Education Occupations.
Bureau of Labor Statistics (DOL), Washington, DC.
"Exploring Careers" is a career education resource program, published in fifteen separate booklets, for junior high school-age students. It provides information about the world of work and offers its readers a way of learning about themselves and relating that information to career choices. The publications aim to build career awareness by means of occupational narratives, evaluative questions, activities, and career games grouped in fourteen occupational clusters. This fifth of the series, "Education Occupations," presents an overview of jobs in the field of education, such as teaching, administration, counseling, and library work. Narrative accounts focus on a children's librarian, a secondary school teacher, and a school counselor, explaining what they do and how they prepared for their careers. Exploring sections relate skills needed for these occupations to students' personal characteristics, and learning activities such as volunteering in elementary schools and inviting a librarian to speak to the class are suggested. A Job Facts section explains nature and places of work, training and qualifications, and other information for nine education occupations, grouped in occupational clusters of school, college, and library occupations. ("Exploring Careers" is also available as a single volume of fifteen chapters.) (KC)
