ASCEND: A Systematic Career Education Network for Dissemination. Final Report.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Center for Career and Occupational Education.
Project ASCEND (A Systematic Career Education Network for Dissemination) of the Center for Career and Occupational Education (CCOE) in New York City developed (1) a sustained communication network in career education and (2) a kit for the dissemination of career education concepts, strategies, and materials into this network. Surveys of the participating schools and key agencies within and outside CCOE provided information concerning the resources and materials needed to develop and implement career education programs as well as the materials and services that could be provided. Survey results were incorporated into an ASCEND kit in the form of a carrying carton containing five self-contained modules, which formed the core of the kit: Improving Basic Skills through Career Education, Improving Personnel and Decision Making Skills, Using Community Resources in Career Education, Implementing Career Education Staff Development, and Planning for Career Education. Each contained three folders providing an orientation to the topic, specific implementation strategies and selected program references, and relevant resources available from CCOE and other agencies. Materials provided included sample lesson plans, posters, flyers on various programs, resource guides, manuals, five filmstrips with cassettes, and an overview booklet. (Some project materials are appended.) (YLB)
