Exploring Careers. Agriculture, Forestry, and Fishery 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 fifteenth of the series presents an overview of jobs in agriculture, forestry, and fisheries occupations. Narrative accounts focus on a farmer, a cooperative extension service worker, and a forester, describing what they do and how they prepared for their jobs. Exploring sections relate skills needed for these occupations to students' personal characteristics, and learning activities such as planning a garden and cleaning up a stream are suggested. A Job Facts section lists nature and places of work, training and qualifications, and other information for eighteen occupations, grouped in the occupational clusters of agricultural production, agricultural support, forestry, and fishery occupations. ("Exploring Careers" is also available as a single volume of fifteen chapters.) (KC)
