ABC's of the World of Work in Maine.
Plumer, Mary; Thompson, Nona L.
This curriculum guide, the initial component in a comprehensive career information delivery system, integrates the delivery of career information with career education concepts. The curriculum guide provides teachers with activities and ideas for classroom use on the following topics: the eight elements of career education; involving parents in career education; using community resources effectively; using the "ABC" posters--kindergarten through second-grade activities, grades 3 and 4 activities, and grades 5 and 6 activities; and additional elementary resources. The eight elements of career education are as follows: appreciation and attitudes; beginning competencies; career awareness; decision making; economic awareness; educational awareness; employability skills; and self-awareness. Two appendices are included: the ABC's and occupational classification systems; and words and phrases in the world of work. The document also contains 26 "ABC" posters that depict 74 occupations. The front of each poster presents an artistic depiction of one or more occupations. The back of the poster contains photographs of actual workers and a brief description of typical job duties. (NLA)
