New Vocational Education Concepts and Programs in Metropolitan Areas, Institute I. Final Report.
Blake, Duane L.; Gutcher, G. Dale
Fifty-eight persons participated in an institute designed to provide the opportunity of sharing ideas and experiences in relation to innovative school systems and vocational programs for the disadvantaged and the potential dropout. Participants heard and reacted to the following presentations: (1) "Educational Programs and Career Opportunities As A Motivating Force For Students" by Merle Strong, (2) "Innovative Programs Designed for Junior High and Elementary Schools In The Exploratory Phase of Vocational Education" by Elizabeth Benjamin, (3) "Exemplary Vocational Programs in Pontiac, Michigan" by Maurice Prottengeier, and (4) "Implementing Exploratory Occupational Programs in New Counseling Techniques to Assist Students to Realistically Enter the World of Work" by Edwin Richardson. The responses to the evaluation form administered at the end of the 5-day institute indicated that the experience had been valuable. Several individuals in positions of leadership immediately took steps to implement within their own state, area, or school district some of the concepts presented at the institute. (JS)
