An Exemplary Model for a Total Ecological Approach to Non-Graded Vocational Programs in Separate Education Centers. Final Report.
Eaddy, K. M.
This project was designed to implement an exemplary model for a total approach to non-graded vocational programs in four separate centers in Florida. Specific Objectives were to: (1) improve student attitudes toward the environment, (2) improve academic achievement of students, (3) develop students' occupational skills, and (4) improve the methods, techniques, skills and attitudes of teachers. The resulting occupational orientation program at the elementary and secondary levels relied on work experience and cooperative education, extensive training in job entry skills, and intensive occupational guidance and counseling. An evaluation by an outside team revealed all major phases of the program to be successful. (Author/GEB)
