Demonstration Programs of Vocational Education in South Carolina Region V, Interim Report and Attachments A-E.
South Carolina Region 5 Educational Services Center, Lancaster.
Developed as a multi-county effort, this project sought to design model career education programs involving: (1) Elementary Orientation, (2) Work Experience, (3) Intensive Teaching, (4) Curriculum Development for Underachievers, and (5) Placement and Followup. In addition to improving and evaluating vocational education at the 11th and 12th grade levels, the on-going project is developing an elementary vocational orientation program with the purpose of teaching "job family" occupational opportunities. While the project is only in its first year of operation, significant progress has been made to warrant the recommendation that all components be expanded and that funding be continued for the next 2 years. The six documents comprising this interim report provide an overview and evaluation of the project, the vocational interdisciplinary program (VIP) for each of the four participating schools, and a teaching guide to the elementary career education program. The four VIP teaching guides outline instructional units and include teaching techniques for the laboratory experience, science, mathematics, and communications. It is hoped this project will contribute to the development of a career education program for K-12. (JS)
