Curriculum Planning for Family Work and Careers




No. 5057, 2005, pp. 346

Curriculum Planning for Family Work and Careers is an important resource for middle school teachers, offering an approach that challenges students to see the impact of daily choices on their lives and communities. Students investigate questions about family and society, develop skills to address these questions, and engage in individual, family, community action, and service-learning projects in an academically rigorous exploration of the family’s role in career development and citizenship.

This guide builds on new discoveries about the effects of the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual environment on the adolescent brain, and the support needed to enhance development and educational achievement in early adolescence. It is designed to help students learn about themselves and others, develop healthy habits, explore roles and careers, and practice the communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and personal management skills needed in everyday life.

Curriculum Planning for Family Work and Careers is based on the premise that we can expect more of our students and challenge them to take responsibility for their choices and actions in order to foster productive, responsible, caring, and contributing citizens of the 21st Century.
