Experience Based Career Education. Annual Report. September 14, 1977-September 13, 1978.
Mattison, William H.
This annual report covers the second year of the three-year experience based career education (EBCE) project designed to provide educationally disadvantaged students (including secondary, postsecondary, adult and other types of clients) in the Appalachian area of Mississippi with on-site work experience, career exploration, current occupational information, and an individualized curriculum. Following a summary, the body of the report describes the EBCE program, initially a fifteen-week program but later expanded to be open-ended, as consisting of two phases: (1) orientation, including explanation of career exploration, testing inventories, introduction to the different training programs available at Itawamba Community Junior College, introduction to various occupations, and introduction to resources available for exploring careers; and (2) on-site experience, during which students explore two or more occupations. The document also contains a third party evaluation which gives background, a project description, evaluation results, discussion, and recommendations. Appendixes are entitled Learning Guide, Publicity Activities, Dissemination Activities, Community Advisory Council, Other Activities, EBCE Success Stories, Follow-up Survey, Enrollment Statistical Data, and Staff Development (LMS)
