New Skins for New Wine.
Safransky, Robert J.
The development of a pre-vocational exploratory program by a junior high school faculty is reported. In an attempt to integrate the academic and pre-vocational exploratory subjects, all pupils are required to take a vocational course as part of their normal load. The primary goal of the program is to develop an awareness of the many careers and career opportunities that are available to pupils who will prepare themselves for these careers through appropriate educational and skill training programs. The faculty also developed a progress report that uses, instead of letter grades, a combination of written statements about the pupil's work in the area and a checklist on his citizenship and work habits. Pupils are measured in relation to their abilities and effort in class. The problem that a non-graded progress report presents to receiving schools was partially solved by including an explanation of the progress report. (Author/KM)
