A Cooperative Developmental Workshop for Career Education in Lancaster County. Final Report.
Eastern Lancaster County School District, New Holland, PA.; Lancaster County Vocational-Technical Schools, PA.; Ephrata Area School District, PA.
This cooperative developmental workshop for teachers, counselors, and administrators was intended to build an understanding of and commitment to career education by working in small groups to develop career education units for demonstration to the group as a whole. Lectures, discussion sessions, demonstrations, and work-team sessions focused on the following themes: (1) an age-graded career development model, (2) a continuum of career development theories, (3) the Comprehensive Career Education Model, (4) the Hackensack career education program, (5) the four Pennsylvania approaches, (6) self-awareness activities, (7) vocational education, and (8) industrial arts. Teaching techniques such as field trips, photography, role-playing, visual aids, simulations, games, and case studies were emphasized for the construction of career education units and district program planning, using the workshop as a change agent. Extensive workshop materials are presented, including sample units and evaluation results. (AG)
