Summary

The general goal of this guide is to add a new dimension to the junior high school curriculum in French and Spanish. It is planned as a guide for the implementation of lessons to make students aware that knowledge of a foreign language plays an increasingly important role in many occupations. Three programs were developed around three clusters of careers - communications, services and marketing. The purpose of each program is to present the varying degrees of foreign language knowledge needed in each job, and to provide students with first-hand experience in observing people at work. Each objective is presented as follows: curriculum concept, objective, activities, evaluation and resources. A test on the exploration of career opportunities was devised to be administered before program one and after program three to evaluate the curriculum's effectiveness. Detailed program activities, presentation methods, materials and job opportunities lists are included. Suggestions for field trips, notes on a background information packet, and a bibliography are appended. (CHK)
