Demonstration Senior High Schools: A Career Education Demonstration and Replication Effort. A Final Report from the Florida Career Education Demonstration Consortium.
Florida Career Education Demonstration Consortium, Tallahassee.
Three Florida counties (Broward, Orange, and Pinellas) formed a consortium for demonstrating the most effective methods and techniques in career education at the secondary level. A career education model was developed which was designed to provide (1) career awareness and exploration experiences for all students, 9-12; (2) alternative salable skills-oriented programs for probable dropouts, 9-12; (3) salable skills experiences for all students, 11-12; (4) guidance and counseling concurrent with instruction and skill development for all students, 9-12; (5) avenues for utilization at all levels of the material and human resources of the school and community; and (6) placement and follow-up services for all school graduates and leavers, 9-12. Several dissemination activities were conducted. Evaluation efforts focused upon student and demonstration/replication product and process objectives. Through a system of testing, student achievement was measured by instruments developed through Florida EPIC (Education Progress in Careers) Project. These instruments focused upon knowledge of the economic system, worker titles, job requirements and functions, career planning, considering careers, acquiring and maintaining a job, inventory of work skills, and attitudes toward school and careers. Student product information was also gathered through questionnaires and other instruments. (Evaluation results are reported for each of the three demonstration high schools. A major portion of this document contains appended materials, including lists of all objectives; descriptions of related projects, courses, and activities conducted at the demonstration schools; and publicity and conference materials.)
