The documents aggregated here comprise the third grade unit of a career education curriculum developed for migrant students. Eleven jobs in the public services and agribusiness (nursing aide, sanitation worker, mail carrier, librarian, fire fighter, police officer, gardener, farmer, logger, miner, forest ranger) are the focus of the unit. The combined teacher and student logs contain job and role information. The logs include activities designed to teach students about the tools and tasks of workers in each of the 11 jobs through activities such as comparing, matching, ordering, writing, drawing, and taking true-false tests. The activities also allow the students to practice their skills of classifying, alphabetizing, charting, judging relevance, reading and sequencing numbers, spelling, self-expressing, and inferring. The teacher log contains copies of the student activities and instructions for their use, introductory and review information about each job and occupational cluster, space for comments, 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 the work performed in the 11 jobs. The illustrated activity folders contain activities developed to increase students' self-awareness, job and role information, and decision making/goal attaining skills. (SB)
