Open Access Graduate Research Paper


An annotated bibliography of biographies was compiled for the career education program in grades 4-6. An attempt was made to locate four biographies for each of the fifteen job clusters designated by the U.S. Office of Education that would be representative of the spectrum of the world of work. A search was made of the Cedar Falls Public Library, Wauzeka Public Schools IMC, and interlibrary loan for biographies. Representative biographies were found for the job clusters of Agribusiness and Natural Resources, Environment, Communication and Media, Fine Arts and Humanities, Health, Public Services, and Recreation and Hospitality. A limited number of representative biographies were found for the job clusters of Construction, Manufacturing, Marine Science, Marketing and Distribution, and Office. No representative biographies for the job clusters of Consumer Homemaker and Personal Services were found.
