Implementation Guide for Exploratory Work Experience Program for Small Urban Schools, Grades 7-12.
Ticknor, Duane; Lesher, Connie
The career/vocational education section of the Oregon Department of Education developed a project to cope with exploratory work experience problems. Three school district models were selected: an urban/semiurban model, a semiurban/rural model, and a rural model. Problems and solutions were presented in three handbooks, and the urban model also produced the "Nonpaid Exploratory Work Experience Handbook for Teachers." The project provided nonpaid work experiences in varying lengths for students in grades 7-12. Project accomplishments included (1) six junior high school staff and six high school teachers wrote curriculum, developed activities, and taught career education concepts, (2) a planned articulated effort was made in career awareness and exploration between a high school and a seventh and eighth grade, (3) an assessment of community interest and willingness to be involved was made, (4) an exploratory work experience in the family life role area was developed and implemented, and (5) three occupational cluster programs in high school were developed. Appendixes contain an exploratory work experience model, a miniresume form, a record in career education form, a junior high exploration packet, and a high school exploratory work experience packet.
