Between Education and the World of Work; The Image of the World of Work. Occupational Education Program.
Bush, Donald O.; And Others
The activity Image of the World of Work, part of the Occupational Education Program of the Rocky Mountain Educational Laboratory, RMEL, is designed to influence and nurture positive work relevant attitudes of seventh grade pupils as well as to increase pupils' knowledge of occupational information and career alternatives. The workshops designed to help teachers carry out this program are described in this report. Several instruments were used to measure attitude change, first of teachers and later, of their pupils. These instruments and results are thoroughly examined. Extensive data are included. Some of the results of the workshop were: (1) teachers became more favorable to an integrated study approach to occupational education after the workshop, and (2) teachers did not show increased insight into viewing occupational choice in relation to self as a result of the workshop. Exhibitions are given, including those on content, manpower, correspondence, and opinions. (Author/KJ)
