Career Education Infusion: Strategies for the Classroom.
Popper, Walter; McClain, Thomas W.
Divided into three chapters, this manual suggests career-related activities designed to be infused in the standard school curriculum, K-12. Chapter 1 provides an overview of career education, including a rationale and outline of the eight basic elements accepted by the federal Office of Education. Chapter 2 explains what is meant by career infusion and suggests various processes and methods career educators utilize at three levels of schooling (primary grades--career awareness; intermediate grades--career exploration; and secondary grades--career preparation). Finally, chapter 3 presents examples of strategies for classroom infusion in the following subject areas: English, social studies, mathematics, science, music, art, and foreign language. For each subject there is a one-page rationale followed by a series of suggested activities, organized according to the eight elements of career education. A master chart is included highlighting certain elements which are particularly suitable to certain subjects. A chart showing the relationship of school subjects to the United States Office of Education career clusters and a draft of the Massachusetts Career Education Objectives are appended. An annotated bibliography is also included, and the entries are organized under the eight career education elements; there is also a section on materials of general interest to career educators. (BM)
