Careers Oriented Relevant Education (C.O.R.E.). Final Report.
Heilman, Cas F.; And Others
Summarized are the components and outcomes of a career education project begun in Oregon in June of 1969. One of the first comprehensive programs in the field, the Careers Oriented Relevant Education program had as its objectives to: (1) plan a program for the public schools based on life career roles, (2) establish effective communication between the educational institutions and the community, (3) provide an experimental program involving a project region, (4) provide inservice and preservice teacher education to assist teachers in becoming careers oriented in their teaching approach, and (5) develop curriculum materials and resources based on the careers approach which could be used to establish other programs. A"four-I" configuration of interests, information, involvement, and implementation was followed in developing, planning, and operating the project. Components included the process dimension, whose concern was modifying the existing curriculum to fit career education objectives, and the planning dimension, concerned with developing a system of participatory management. The staffs of four junior high schools were involved in the project as were top level school administrators, parents, students, and persons from the business and industrial community. Seven appendixes containing additional information supplement the text. (SN)
