Activities for Career and Employability Outcomes (K-6). Revised.
Kielbaso, Gloria; And Others
This book provides K-6 teachers with concrete examples and suggestions for infusing career and employability outcomes with the existing classroom activities. The introduction includes the philosophy and general goals for Career and Employability Outcomes from 1991 Michigan K-12 Program Standards for Quality. The second section describes a nine-step infusion process: gather or locate materials; identify subject matter learner outcomes; identify career and employability learner outcomes; learner activities; learner resources; teacher activities; support services; assessment; and notes. The next two sections provide activities for grades K-3 and 4-6, respectively. Each activity consists of these components: title, subject matter, purpose, primary activity (list of steps to follow), materials list, list of variations, and examples or any required handouts or materials. The last section provides activities for students with special needs. Components of each of these activities are as follows: title; program, e.g., trainable mentally impaired, learning disabled, physically and otherwise health impaired, visually impaired, hearing impaired; subject matter; purpose; primary activity; variations on the activity itself or for specific groups of students with special needs; and examples or any required handouts or materials. Examples of subject matter areas that are included are math, art, reading, social studies, weather, health, physical education, and language arts. (YLB)
