The documents aggregated here comprise the grade six unit of a career education curriculum designed for migrant students. Focusing on marine science, business, and office occupations, the combined teacher and student logs contain learning activities related to nine jobs: hydrographer, marine biologist, fish hatchery technician, boat builder, clerical worker, actuary, cashier, assistant bank manager, and computer operator. The logs include an orientation to the unit, an introduction and review sections for the nine jobs, vocabulary lists, ideas for further activities, space for notes, answers to the exercises and all the student activities and instructions for their use. 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 student activities are intended to provide information about the nine jobs as well as to reinforce vocabulary, outlining, charting, graphing, spelling, logical validity, writing, classifying, and, particularly, mathematics skills. The activity folders are designed to increase students' self-awareness, job and role information, and decision making/goal attaining skills. (NQA)
