Targeted Communications for Instituting Vocational Placement and Followup. Interim Report.
McCracken, J. David; And Others
To provide substantive and methodological information concerning systematic vocational placement and followup to individuals responsible for educational program change, a project was conducted to develop three publications, each for different audiences, including school board members, teacher educators, and local school personnel. Information needs were identified during ad hoc meetings with representatives of the target groups. The information base for the project included: (1) literature identified through Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) and other systems, (2) existing programs, and (3) the knowledge and experience of employees, school board members, and educators involved with the project. Publications were developed according to the format specified by the target audience representatives. The three publications are: (1) "Placement and Followup of Secondary School Vocational Education Students," by Melvin D. Miller and Wesley E. Budke, (2) "Is Your School Meeting Students Needs: Job Placement, Student Followup," and (3) "Job Placement and Student Followup: Information for Vocational Teacher Educators," by Melvin D. Miller and Wesley E. Budke. The publications are appended. The final report is available as VT 015 013 in this issue. (Author/BH)
