TECHNIQUES FOR SELECTING AND PRESENTING OCCUPATIONAL INFORMATION TO HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS. PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT OF RESEARCH PROGRAMS IN SELECTED AREAS OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION, VOLUME I.
BRIGGS, LESLIE J.; NORRIS, ELEANOR L.
AS AN INITIAL STEP TOWARD IMPROVEMENT IN SELECTING AND DEVELOPING TYPES OF OCCUPATIONAL INFORMATION NEEDED BY HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS, AS WELL AS IMPROVEMENT OF THE FORMAT BY WHICH SUCH INFORMATION IS PRESENTED, AN EXPERIMENTAL DRAFT OF OCCUPATIONAL INFORMATION MATERIALS WAS PREPARED AND EVALUATED. THESE PILOT MATERIALS WERE DESIGNED FOR USE IN CAREER PLANNING FOR ONE PARTICULAR JOB FAMILY, THE SECRETARIAL VOCATIONS. THREE BOOKLETS WERE PREPARED, ENTITLED "WOMEN'S PLACE IN TODAY'S WORLD OF WORK,""ENTRY JOBS LEADING TO THE POSITION OF SECRETARY," AND "WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE A SECRETARY." IN ADDITION, THESE BOOKLETS CORRESPONDED RESPECTIVELY TO STUDENT NEEDS AT THREE DIFFERENT STAGES OF INDIVIDUAL DEVELOPMENT--(1) THE NEED TO REALISTICALLY PERCEIVE THE PLACE OF BOTH SEXES IN RELATION TO THE WORKING WORLD, (2) THE NEED FOR AWARENESS OF THE WIDE RANGE OF JOB FAMILIES WHICH ONE MIGHT ENTER, AND (3) THE NEED TO SELECT A SPECIFIC EDUCATIONAL OR TRAINING PROGRAM FOR A PARTICULAR ENTRY JOB IN WHICH ONE IS INTERESTED. AFTER A BRIEF TRYOUT OF THE MATERIALS (INTERVIEWING AND TESTING SELECTED STUDENTS), THE BOOKLETS WERE REVISED TO IMPROVE THEIR FORMAT OF PRESENTATION. ADDITIONAL RESEARCH WAS RECOMMENDED FOR IDENTIFYING IMPROVED CONTENT AND TECHNIQUES TO BE USED IN PRESENTING SIMILAR OCCUPATIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT OTHER JOBS OR OTHER JOB FAMILIES. RELATED REPORTS ARE ED 010 623 THROUGH ED 010 626. (JH)
