Career Orientation Program. Final Report.
In its first year, a developmental career orientation program for an integrated curriculum in the East Hartford, Connecticut, school system at the elementary level implemented a wide range of "real-life" activities, field trips, and resource speakers. Focusing on occupations in the community, this career awareness project met educational needs and program objectives successfully. A teacher workshop, which preceded the introduction of instructional units, provided participants with an overview of the program's objectives, teaching procedures, resource materials, learning activities, and evaluation techniques. Ideas for next year's career education activities are listed. (AG)
