Articulation of Occupational Orientation, Education, and Placement in Private and Public Elementary, Secondary and Post-Secondary Schools. Evaluation Report (May, 1971-April 30, 1972).
Strong, Merle E.
As a preliminary step in evaluating a federally-funded exemplary career awareness program for the elementary, secondary, and post-secondary grades, 13 educational objectives were delineated and major accomplishments, problems, and recommendations were specified. A summer workshop for teachers and counselors, and inservice meetings produced a detailed guide for program articulation and strategies for integrated career education instruction. An occupational guidance resource center was developed, and specific program articulation involved counselors, principals, a local vocational education coordinator, workshop participants, and a steering/advisory committee in job placement, educational coordination, and cooperative education activities. It was recommended that: (1) the broad programmatic scope be narrowed, (2) additional project staff be added and roles more clearly defined, and (3) leaders in business, industry, and post-secondary technical education be involved in occupational orientation activities.
