Teacher Inservice Training for Career Education Projects in Mississippi. Final Report (June 1, 1971-June 30, 1972).
Wall, James E.; Shill, James F.
This federally funded 13-month inservice teacher training project began with a 3-day staff training workshop, which served to orient a superintendent, local project coordinator, and guidance counselor from each of four schools to the career education concept. Each of the four project schools then held a local inservice training workshop, involving 339 teachers and/or administrators. An inservice training handbook was developed, containing a rationale for career education, concepts, objectives, and suggested activities. Leaders from business and industry gave speeches on career education in the community, and teachers met by grade level and subject matter area to discuss the implementation of career education concepts. Problem areas in program development were identified by means of a teacher questionnaire, and resource lists were provided for teachers. A final workshop was held to evaluate progress, discuss implementation problems, and plan future activities. Continuation of inservice training in career education is recommended, since the workshop objectives were successfully achieved. (AG)
