Guidelines for Career Content in the Foreign Language Class.
Bennett, Ruth L.
Career education should be part of every subject area on every grade level, from kindergarten through graduate school. Its components--self-awareness, educational awareness, career awareness, and curriculum infusion--can be included in language classes through special activities gleaned from career books, newspapers, and magazines; through judicious use of the regular classroom text; and by using the ancillary texts recommended. Important career activities described here include a Career Day and school and classroom bulletin boards for career information. Motivating activities are suggested for improving students' speaking, reading, and writing skills. Three texts dealing specifically with careers in foreign languages are mentioned, as well as a number of foreign language texts with information on numerous careers, which can be used in language and/or conversation courses at various levels. There is a sizable appendix containing an annotated bibiliography, guidelines for conducting a Career Day, and activities for each of the four aspects of career education. Some materials are given in both Spanish and English. (Author/AMH)
