Is Science a Possible Career for You? A Science Career Development Program Especially Designed for Deaf Students. Teacher/Counselor Guide.
French, Mary O.
This teacher/counselor guide presents a science career development program especially designed for students with deafness in residential schools, day schools, or mainstream settings. The program consists of three sections: "Why Consider a Career in Science?"; "What Do People in Science Do?"; and "How Do You Find Out If Science Is a Career for You?" The learning activities are designed as teacher-led discussions to be used with small groups, where much of the direction for the activity can be based on students' individual experiences. For each activity, the purpose is stated, materials needed are listed, background information is provided, guidance is given for conducting the activity, optional activities are noted, and teacher and student references are listed. A chart describes each learning activity and lists science careers and scientists mentioned within that activity. Another chart provides a suggested activity sequence based on the amount of time available for teaching the unit. A list of professional societies with career information is included. (JDD)
