Technology for Children. A Three-Year Narrative Report (January 1, 1969-December 1, 1971).
Dreves, Fred J.
Highlights of a career education program for the elementary grades in New Jersey, entitled Technology for Children (T4C), are presented separately for the years 1969, 1970, and 1971. A systems approach was utilized to integrate this comprehensive program into New Jersey schools, focusing on its urban areas. Preliminary program planning and development in Parkside School in Camden City, involving an administration team and teams for teacher training and curriculum development, led to implementation of pilot career education programs in three cities. Program evaluation has involved five phases, the first two of which are nearly complete: (1) collecting background data on student characteristics, (2) measurement of students' self-concepts and school attitudes by means of achievement tests, (3) analyzing students' perceptions of school and work, (4) analyzing changes in standardized test scores as part of an ongoing testing program, and (5) readministering Phase 2 instruments in May 1972 to classes selected at random. Photographs illustrate the leaflet and several tables present the data. A program summarization and evaluation, including educational objectives, complete the program description. (AG)
