The 16 Career Clusters: A Project-Based Orientation
(ISBN-10: 0538449713 | ISBN-13: 9780538449717)
Welcome to the world of job and career exploration. THE 16 CAREER CLUSTERS: A PROJECT-BASED ORIENTATION TEXT / iMPACT CD PACKAGE contains a chapter of hands-on activities for each of the U.S. Department of Education's 16 career clusters plus an iMPACT interactive text CD. Now students can explore job and career options through activities that help them discover what skills and traits are needed to be successful in each career field. The iMPACT Interactive text CD is a fully functioning version of the textbook delivered via CD-ROM, offering a fresh new way of learning. Most of the activities can be completed on the computer using the built-in forms provided on the CD. Students can print their completed activity forms or e-mail them directly to the instructor. Interactive elements include hypertext links from the Table of Contents to subsections of the text, live Internet links, and animations to help students complete the activities.
The Career Cluster approach has been implemented in many classes today.
It allows students to explore a wide range of career opportunities from entry level through management and professional levels. In the process of completing this book, students learn more about their own talents and interests while thinking about each job or career as it relates to them, their plans, and their dreams for the future. They will learn about--and make decisions about--hiring practices, business ethics, emerging technologies, finances, and globalization.
