Kuckkan, Kevin G.
This teacher's manual contains a series of activities geared toward the teaching of career education in an integrated manner that can show students, particularly those from urban areas, the integrated nature of the career world and the importance of acquiring a variety of life skills as they prepare to enter the work world. The manual is divided into two parts. Part I, Job Awareness and Tools for the Workplace, focuses primarily on creating an awareness of the multitude of careers available in the real world through the use of several brainstorming and investigative exercises. It also includes several activities that use tools necessary for employment in the career world, such as interpreting classified advertisements, filling out a job application, and writing a business letter. Part II, Workplace Problem Solving, deals with real-world problems that businesses and entrepreneurs might encounter in the course of running a business. The activities are designed to show how "book knowledge" is directly transferrable to life in the business world. The manual also contains a vocabulary list and an answer key. (KC)
