Career Information in the Classroom: Workshop Guide for Infusing the Occupational Outlook Handbook. Special Publication Series No. 39.
Boyle, Karen Kimmel; Whelden, Ernest
An instructor's manual and six instructional modules are provided for a workshop to motivate and train K-12 teachers to incorporate occupational information into their curricula. Contents of the manual include an overview of the competency-based training package with brief descriptions of the modules (concepts and teaching competencies addressed, the instructional activities and content, and approximate time lines for instruction), information on how to plan a workshop, and helpful hints and techniques for group leadership. A competency opinionnaire is appended. Module titles are (1) Basic Principles of Career Development, (2) How to Develop Infused Activities, (3) The Occupational Outlook Handbook and Occupational Information, (4) Understanding the Labor Market, (5) Understanding the Economy, and (6) Exploring Careers. Each module is designed with a similar format. An introductory page presents the module's purpose and the key concepts and teacher competencies it addresses. The instructional content is presented in two or three learning experiences. An overview sheet for each learning experience identifies the key concepts, competencies, and objectives covered and presents pertinent instructor information (instructional time, resources, and instructional methods). An instructor's outline provides detailed information. Masters for suggested worksheets, handouts, and transparences follow. Modules 4-6 include abstracts of related teaching activities. Suggested evaluation instruments and techniques as well as reference lists conclude each module. (YLB)
