Summary

Developed as part of a curriculum project described in vt 004 454 to help young people learn basic principles and concepts of mechanics and technology, this book was designed to stimulate interest and answer questions about vocational choice, stimulate interest in reading, and provide content to relate to academic study. The materials developed in the project were tested on eighth and ninth graders in school systems in several states. For each of nine occupations in the building trades, nine occupations related to mechanical and electrical repair, and 11 other occupations ranging from gasoline service station attendant to printers, there is information about what they do, training and qualifications, earnings and working conditions, employment outlook, and where to get further information. The appendix contains a glossary, a table of hourly, weekly, and yearly wage equivalents, and a graph of average earnings in the occupations presented. The book is illustrated with photographs and line drawings. Other related documents are vt 004 454 through vt 004 471. (em)
