Career Education for Elementary Grades.
Dianna, Michael A.
Information and activities are provided to help elementary school teachers develop a career education "environment" for children. Ten basic premises of career education are outlined, and the key ideas and terms that emerge from the premises are defined. The eight goals of career education are set forth to provide the teacher with a base from which to develop a personal plan to infuse career education into the existing curriculum. Suggestions are then made for integrating existing curricula with career education ideas. A sample of subject-related activities is included for these subjects: social studies, guidance, language arts/reading, science, physical education, and mathematics. Job-related activities follow for these occupations: FBI agent, printer, musician, construction worker, costume designer, telephone installer, firefighter, librarian, police officer, and classroom jobs. Essential resources and the procedure are detailed for each activity. Adaptations are suggested for individual classrooms. A listing of some additional career education resources is appended. (YLB)
