1 The Clusters David Agnew ASU-Jonesboro

2 Cluster Facts: Old and New Clusters are a means of organizing or categorizing all job or occupations. Developed by the U.S. Office of Education Until year 2000 there were 15 clusters. In 2000 the USOE put forth a new system which was 16 clusters. This was more than just adding another number it was a reorganization and redistribution of jobs or occupations into new clusters.

3 Old 15 Cluster System Agri-business & Natural Resources Health Business and Office Public Service Communications & Media Transportation Construction Consumer & Homemaking Environmental Fine Arts & Humanities Personal Services Hospitality & Recreation Manufacturing Marine Science Marketing & Distribution

Technology & Communications Business & Administration Education & Training Finance Government & Public Administration Health Science Hospitality & Tourism Human Services Information Technology Law & Public Safety Manufacturing Retail wholesale Sales & Service Scientific Research & Engineering Transportation. Distribution, & Logistics

51 Should your students know the clusters? Two points of views…..Yes and No Yes --- The purpose of CO is to give students an overview of the world of work. The 12000 or so jobs need to be arranged in some logical order so that students can research and study careers in a logical manner. But the knowledge that there are 16 clusters may be more important than naming them all. No --- Knowing the cluster is not that important. This is really useless knowledge that waste the student time to learn.

52 How can I teach them the clusters? Simple memorize –Have them work on this on their own and then give rewards for those who learn first –Have then either recite in class or have them write on paper. –Use some classroom group recitation activities. Game(s) –Circle of chairs each person states one and then next person says previous one and one more…. –Write on board and erase a little as you all repeat them out loud Pneumonic(s) A system to help lead lists by using first letter of word(s).

53 Pneumonic There had been a good easy Pneumonic that had been developed and used by teachers in AR for many years for the old 15cluster system. My summer class of 2001 developed their own Pneumonic as a class assignment. I have two here that I will share. The first was presented at CO Conference in Summer 2001 by Allie Brooks, then student and later the CO teacher at Brookland. The second was developed by 2 ag guys and a coach at the Dequeen site.
