Career Education Resource Guide. Volume I: K-6.
Treacy, Thomas D., Ed.
This first of a three-volume career education resource guide consists of 167 teacher-developed and -tested learning activities for use in grades K-6. Included in the volume are activities that can be incorporated into existing curricula in the following subject areas: art, health, language arts, math, music, science, social studies, safety education, and special education. The activities are presented in a consistent format, including the activity subject area, grade level, and title; behavioral objectives; steps for completing the activity; and resources pertinent to the activity. Designed to be fused into existing classroom curricula, the activities address such career themes as self-awareness, career awareness, educational awareness, economic awareness, decision making, beginning competency, employability skills, and appreciation and attitudes. Among the types of activities provided are discussions, writing projects, mock businesses, simulated radio broadcasts, role playing, field trips, and lectures on various role models and historical changes in the occupational patterns of various groups. (Other volumes of the guide, containing similar materials for use in grades 7-9 and 10-12, are available separately--see note.) (MN)
