Springfield's Trajectory Occupational Program: Report.
South Dakota Univ., Springfield.
The Springfield Trajectory Occupational Program (STOP), designed to provide a 23-day residential occupational exploration program for 90 11th grade students from small South Dakota high schools, utilizes industrial field trips, self-evaluation, group and individual counseling, laboratory projects and dormitory activities in a multi-media approach to career planning. For each participant, a summary report was returned to his high school. The student-centered developmental program included in-depth exploration of six occupational areas, living in college housing with dorm "parents" and eating in college dining facilities. The project's success demonstrates that a summer residential approach for providing occupational, social, and personal development for students from rural areas is highly productive. Program descriptions, given separately for each of the 2 years, include participant and staff evaluations. Various program forms are appended. (AG)
