Project Match; Ontario-Montclair School District, Ontario, California. A Submission to the Joint Dissemination Review Panel.
Baker, Octave V.
One of seven career education programs chosen for nationwide dissemination by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare's Joint Dissemination Review Panel (JDRP), Project MATCH (Matching Attitudes and Talents to Career Horizons) is being conducted for grades K-8 in Ontario, California. For the years 1974-78, it received federal funding under ESEA Title IV-C. Developed to infuse career education into the regular curriculum, the project covers ten areas: career awareness, self-awareness, attitude development, educational awareness, economic awareness, consumer competencies, career orientation, career exploration, career planning and decision making, and civic responsibilities. One hundred and ten infusion units have been developed as well as the following five special programs: Simutown, Individualized Reading Center Program, English Course of Study, Citizen Apprentice Program, and Individualized Learning Activity Packages. To evaluate the project's effectiveness, four project-developed career education tests were administered to both treatment and control students in each grade. Based on the test results and the large sample used in the tests, it was concluded that the project produces educationally significant results. (The review process that this and the other six projects underwent prior to JDRP submission and approval is described in CE 214-215.) (ELG)
