Using Existing Vocational Programs for Providing Exploratory Experiences.
Albracht, James And Others
This program of exploring occupations seeks to use existing vocational programs to help the upper junior high and high school student: (1) understand himself in relation to various occupational roles, (2) plan for achieving his occupational goal, (3) show an awareness of himself as a productive citizen, and (4) learn of the available community opportunities related to existing vocational programs. Existing programs which might be used are shop or laboratory-type classes or cooperative part-time programs. Four phases of activities which may be used for these exploratory experiences are orientation, exploration, applied experiences, and evaluation and follow-up. Examples detailed for these general activities include the following: (1) filmstrips and discussions, (2) observation of shop and laboratory, of on-the-job observation, and field trips, (3) progress reports, participation in voluntary service organizations, and interviews, and (4) post tests, membership in organizations, and participation in work experience programs.
