Annotation: Developed for the Spanish-speaking student at the nonreading level (level 1), this booklet is one of three modules (levels A, B, and C) in a curriculum unit on the police officer.
Abstract: The curriculum unit is one of a series of 12 curriculum units, each on a different occupation, designed to develop career awareness in migrant and nonmigrant Spanish-speaking students at different reading levels, particularly in grades K-6. The booklet is divided into three sections. The Teaching Unit includes a listing of occupations related to the police officer at the entry and professional levels, unit objectives, major activities (two stories), coordinated subjects (reading and social studies), attitude and awareness concepts, and a suggestion for a large group experience which would provide a broad focus on the career cluster. Student Activities I and II (in separate sections) provide full-page pictures corresponding to the sequences of the stories presented in the teaching unit, and which allow the testing of student learning according to unit objectives. The Criterion Referenced Tests correspond to the two student activities. All information is presented in both English and Spanish on a simultaneous, page-by-page basis. (Author abstract)
