The documents aggregated here comprise the fourth grade unit of a career education curriculum for migrant students. The unit focuses on the tools and tasks of workers in 11 jobs in the construction, communication, and media occupational clusters: heavy equipment operator, architect, mason, carpenter, plumber, electrician, telephone line worker, announcer, photographer, journalist, and performer. The combined teacher and student logs contain job and role information for the unit. An introduction to each cluster and job contains vocabulary words and ideas for extending the lessons to the local community, plus instructions for conducting the lessons and space for notes. The teachers' logs are intended to inform students about the 11 communications and construction jobs; the lessons include activities and games that help students practice sequencing, estimating, vocabulary and word skills (synonyms, antonyms, and compound words), logic, fact finding, and spelling. 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)
