Treacy, Thomas D., Ed.
This second of a three-volume career education resource guide consists of 146 teacher-developed and -tested learning activities for use in grades 7-9. Included in the volume are activities that can be incorporated into existing curricula in the following subject areas: art, English, counseling, home economics, language arts, math, physical education, power technology, reading, sciences, and social studies. 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 art projects; worksheets; discussions; and small group projects involving student development of problems, role playing, simulation, panel discussions, and newspaper writing exercises. (Other volumes of the guide, containing similar materials for use in grades K-6 and 10-12, are available separately--see note.) (MN)
