An Evaluation of Career Guidance Films.
Culver City Unified School District, CA.
The primary goal of this project was to motivate and assist school staffs in planning and implementing effective vocational guidance programs. A second goal was to determine in what ways and under what conditions the vocational guidance series, "Careers in the 70's," contributes positively to vocational guidance programs. High schools in four California districts were selected to participate in this project. A random sample of students from four schools served as subjects. The findings strongly support the value of including the "Careers in the 70's" film series as part of a vocational guidance program. In the four schools included in the project, the films positively affected students' attitudes toward work and motivated them to seek additional information and to make career choices. The films also exposed them to many new jobs and encouraged them to explore other jobs available. However, it was not possible to generalize to programs that would merely show the films without their being an integral part of a planned program. (Author/BW)
