Part of a two-level career education curriculum initially developed for migrant children, the book is the first of three secondary level texts designed to provide high school students with self-awareness, job and role information, and decision-making/goal attaining information related to career education. The text provides job and role information on 60 jobs in 15 career clusters defined by the United States Department of Labor: agribusiness, fine arts and humanities, business and office, communication and media, construction, consumer and homemaking, environmental control, health and safety, hospitality and recreation, manufacturing, marine science, marketing and distribution, personal services, public services, and transportation. The book defines each cluster, then uses a story, cartoon, interview, fact sheet, or poem to describe each job. Each job description in the text is followed by a short quiz. Illustrated with line drawings and stick figures, the book has been written for three reading levels: third grade, fifth grade, and high school. (SB)
