Program Guide: A Guide for Development and Operation of a Secondary School Allied Health Career Program.
The project described in this document was designed as an experiment in career education in the health field. The 3-year program offered students in three Los Angeles high schools and one Long Beach high school an introduction to health careers in the first year, work experience in the second, and cooperative or work-study education in the third. The program considers the needs of each student, with individualized teaching, self-instructional materials, and other aids. Each student starts at his own level of achievement and moves along at his own rate of speed. Progress is measured against individual performance rather than the class performance. Thus high achievers may move ahead without being hampered while low achievers are not threatened by further failure. In this guide, a brief history of the pilot and demonstration project is followed by the step-by-step procedures required to establish new programs. Included are documents, information sheets, and forms used in the project. The program design included evaluation of each of the three 1-year phases. This guide was written to provide assistance to other school districts in establishing similar health career programs. (MF)
