Activities for Career Development in Early Childhood Curriculum.
Yawkey, Thomas Daniels; Aronin, Eugene L.
The book presents career education activities and approaches for use by teachers, administrators, counselors, and students involved in early childhood education (ages three through eight). Part One stresses the importance of and rationale for career development in the early childhood curriculum. Research support for the approach to career education through self-awareness, exploratory-decision-making skills, and informational-content components is also included. Part Two emphasizes the socialization approach and contains the following curriculum units basic to social and family living: People Doing Things, Our Families, Our School, The Community, Pets, Communication, Transportation, and Housing. Part Three stresses curriculum and techniques based on subject disciplines through the following units: Language Arts and Reading, Social Studies, Mathematics, Science, Art, Music, and Physical Education. Each unit in both sections includes objectives, background information, detailed learning activities, and evaluation activities and strategies (presented separately for the content-information, exploratory behavior, and self-awareness components of the program). Activities are designed by letter codes for use with preschool or primary grade children. The last chapter lists additional resources (indexes, organizations, books, and curriculum guides) for educators. A 16-item reference list concludes the book. (Author/MS)
