Focusing on health and personal service occupations, the documents aggregated here contain the combined teacher and student log sheets for the grade 1 unit of a career education curriculum originally designed for migrant children; student worksheets on job and role information; and learning activities related to 12 jobs: blacksmith, television repairer, hairdresser/barber, day care worker, waitress, gas station attendant, family doctor, ambulance driver/attendant, dietician, dentist, school nurse, and optometrist. The activities are intended to help students develop skills in classification, writing, reading, arithmetic, determining relationships of quantity, and sequencing; and in distinguishing between cause and effect, fact and fantasy, and main and supplementary ideas. The teacher log contains information about each job, instructions for each activity, space for comments, the stories and information to be read to the students, and suggested answers for the activity pages. The pre- and post-tests utilize pictures to measure the extent to which students understand the tools needed and work performed in the 12 jobs. The illustrated activity folders contain activities developed to increase students' self-awareness, job and role information, and decision making/goal attaining skills. (NQA)
