The guide aims at integrating the career education concepts of self-awareness, career awareness, and occupational awareness into the seventh grade science curriculum. Each of the units on self-knowledge, career preparation knowledge, and career planning contain goals, performance objectives, activities, and outcome measures. Unit activities include viewing films, listing 10 careers in science, applying for a job, and discussing the pros and cons of science careers. A list of materials (available in the Hanley Library) includes career cassette tapes, titles of books, and film titles. Additional suggested science-related activities and a career questionnaire are provided. The guide also includes 12 pages of career guidance publications listed alphabetically by career area, seven pages of alphabetically arranged addresses of resource organizations, and a three-page list of careers related to science and technology.
