An Appraisal of the First Year and Recommended Activities and Strategies of the National Advisory and Review Committee. Public Service Occupations Curriculum Project.
Burns, William E.; Blue, Harold M.
Career Education has recently emerged as a dominant theme in American Education, with its main thrust to prepare all students for a successful life of work by increasing vocational options and enhancing skill development. This report is one of a series developed to assist educators and administrators charged with the task of coordinating these programs. It summarizes the accomplishments of a national project to design a curriculum and implement career education programs in public serviced occupations, and it offers recommendations of successful strategies and activities to use in the implementation of such programs. Activities and accomplishments of the project effort included: (1) a national search for exemplary public-service programs and instructional materials, (2) development of teacher guides for the exploratory and preparation phase of the public-service occupation cluster, (3) limited pilot testing of one of the guides, (4) involvement of several hundred people from more than 20 states in the curriculum development process, and (5) establishment of liaison channels with over 80 organizations and groups. An earlier document describing the previous year's accomplishments is available as ED 062 526. (Author/SN)
