Career Exploration Program: A Cluster Approach. Publication No. 0057.
Ansbro, William; And Others
Based on the occupational clusters designated by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, this curriculum guide presents a career exploration program for junior high and middle school students. The program, presented in eighty-minute weekly sessions, is designed as an alternative activity in which students can elect to explore a wide variety of occupations. Seven occupational clusters and an awareness unit are included in this document. The awareness unit covers the following concepts: educational awareness, career awareness, self-awareness, work habits and attitudes, decision making, and socio-technological and economic understanding. The next seven units cover the following occupational clusters: health, communications and media, consumer and homemaking, public service, personal services, hospitality and recreation, business. Each unit contains a brief introduction to the cluster area, instructional objectives, job descriptions and vocabulary terms related to the cluster area, learning activities, pre- and posttests, a list of teacher resources, and a list of student resources. Parts of the program are designed for a laboratory setting but can be adapted to the regular classroom setting. The units are not bound to any sequence, allowing the teacher to be selective. (BM)
