The Development of Vocational Orientation Packets for Use by Teachers in the Elementary Schools. (May 1, 1971-June 30, 1972). Final Report.
Arkansas State Dept. of Education, Little Rock. Div. of Vocational, Technical and Adult Education.
The major objective of this project was the preparation of instructional packets for vocational orientation at the elementary level. A developmental workshop and related seminars on this theme involved five teachers, two counselors, and a principal, all for the elementary grade levels, in addition to various state agencies and educational personnel in a year-long exemplary project. About 56 occupational modules were developed, and 38 were tested in the participants' schools and other pilot Arkansas schools. The materials were reproduced in booklet form after necessary changes, revisions, and evaluation. Occupational information was secured by interviewing students, parents, and local employees and used in preparing these integrated career awareness packets for a social studies curriculum. Audiovisual aids, bibliographies, and resource materials were gathered and reviewed prior to statewide dissemination of the packets for use by elementary teachers during the 1972 school year. A teaching guide resulting from this project will be used in local pilot programs in vocational education for small Arkansas schools at that time. (AG)
