The Newsletter of the National World of Work Economics Education Project.
Colorado State Univ., Ft. Collins. Center for Economic Education.; Joint Council on Economic Education, New York, NY.
The semi-annual newsletter allows for dissemination of current information of the World-of-Work Economic Education Project (WOWEE) which will provide a basis for career planning by junior and senior high students. Intended for teachers and other educators, the newsletter typically includes details about upcoming conferences, meetings, and workshops; available materials; staff announcements; notes of interest; publications; and general announcements concerning the project. In this first issue the lead article describes the effort of the two-year national project conducted by the Joint Council of Economic Education in cooperation with the Colorado State University Center for Economic Education and includes information on objectives and funding. Other articles explain career education goals; suggest approaching the study of the economic system from the standpoint of a human resource; discuss content and purposes of the projects toward helping youth; name staff; and list basic reading reference materials related to the World of Work Project. A regular feature of the newsletter will be "School Talk" in which educators describe their experiences with the program. Those interested in receiving the free newsletter should get on the mailing list. (SJM)
