Project Scarlett: A Demonstration Middle School Career Exploration Project.
Ann Arbor Public Schools, MI.
The narrative portion of this report described the middle school career exploration curriculum now in effect for grades 6, 7, and 8 at Scarlett Junior High School, Ann Arbor, Michigan. The major goal of the project was to establish, in a student oriented environment, a balanced learning program to increase student affective and cognitive growth. This growth would then facilitate a transition into a career preparatory curriculum at the high school level. The teaching methodology, as exemplified by the sixth grade model schedule in the report, moved from a departmentalized to an integrated interdisciplinary team teaching approach. The particular cognitive, affective, and psychomotor objectives were listed along with a description of the project's administration. The three classes involved had a combined enrollment of 305; 30% of the expected enrollment. All participating teachers were volunteers. The report provided evaluation objectives, the proposed budget, schedules for the classes and teachers involved, and a statement made by the Ann Arbor Public Schools verifying the legality of the project.
