Career Education for Disadvantaged Students. Final Report.
McCracken, J. David; Brown, Alice J.
This project was conducted to provide local school administrators, teacher educators, and teachers with a synthesis of the literature and practice relating to the career education of disadvantaged students. Information was secured by visiting eight on-going career education programs, interviewing their program directors, corresponding with directors of promising programs, and reviewing the literature. In addition, a 1-day consultants workshop was held to strengthen the perspectives of the four project authors who developed papers for the three target groups covering the following topics: (1) descriptions of exemplary programs for disadvantaged students, which was developed for local school administrators and is available as VT 018 541 in this issue; (2) research and theory related to the motivation of disadvantaged students, and curriculum materials for use with disadvantaged readers in developing their employment skills, which were developed for teachers and are available as VT 018 542 and VT 018 544, respectively, in this issue; and (3) descriptions of methods and programs for preparing teachers, which was developed for teacher educators and is available as VT 018 543 in this issue.
