Career Awareness/Job Orientation VIA Taped Television Programs. Experimental Study.
Bernabei, Raymond; Case, James
This paper describes an attempt by the Hazleton, Pennsylvania School District to better utilize its vocational-technical education facilities through attracting more students to this area of educational endeavor. Two programs were provided for the purpose of developing a more positive attitude about work in children, and particularly about selected job areas. A "Job Awareness/Career Awareness" program was set up for elementary students (grades 4, 5, 6) and a "Job Orientation" program (grades 7, 8, 9). A means for carrying out the intention of the Hazleton School District was the use of taped television presentations about selected job areas at the two levels of job awareness/career awareness and job orientation. An attempt was made to determine the effectiveness of the taped programs in developing more positive attitudes of students toward selected careers. The experimental program was generally evaluated as a success. There was conclusive evidence that the program effected a change in the attitudes of the students. (Author/WS)
