Career and Vocational Education for Small Schools: A Guide for Planning and Implementation. Revised.
Miller, Barbara, Ed.
Oregon offers this guide to assist educators in establishing career education programs in small schools, K-12. Section 1 gives suggestions for promoting awareness, exploration, and preparation and lists goals for incorporating career educational concepts into all areas of the curriculum. Emphasis is placed on vocational clusters and special programs, home economics, industrial arts, guidance, community involvement, advisory committees, vocational student organizations, and energy education. Section 2 contains an updated report on the results of the pilot project at Amity, Condon, and Lost River. Each school has developed a different approach based on local needs and resources. The Creative Career and Vocational Education Project (1977-1980), funded to assess difficulties in establishing career and vocational programs in schools with an enrollment of 75 or fewer students, is now in progress at 2 high schools (Alsea and Mitchell). Section 3 presents profiles of the current career and vocational programs and activities in Oregon's small schools. The profiles indicate that emphasis is placed on career awareness and exploration in grades K-8 and on development of career related skills and competencies in grades 9-12. High school programs are numerous and varied. Names of contact persons for each school are included, and inquiries and personal visits are encouraged. (CM)
