The Beginnings of Career Education in the Albuquerque Public Schools, 1971-72.
Albuquerque Public Schools, NM.
This federally funded exemplary career education project involved 35 Mini-Grant programs conducted within 24 elementary and middle schools in the Albuquerque Public Schools. Project highlights are described, noting the favorable impact of innovative career awareness activities upon disadvantaged Indian students, their parents, and the community. Shortcomings of the program were identified, such as lack of adequate facilities, time, and funds, and concerns for the future were voiced. The eight remaining sections of the report discuss: (1) arts and crafts projects, (2) industrial arts, (3) career awareness, (4) ecology, (5) home economics, (6) office education, (7) integrated career education activities, and (8) indexes by grade level, area, and school. Photographs illustrate the text, which includes performance objectives and teaching procedures for each separate project activity. (AG)
