Unifying a Career Development Theme in the Curriculum Through Teacher In-Service Activities. Final Report: Models for Secondary Career Education in Iowa. Final Report: Final Report Addendum.
Iowa State Dept. of Public Instruction, Des Moines. Div. of Career Education.
Three distinct concepts are included in the report and addendum. The report itself documents two projects conducted under an Office of Education grant. The addendum is a four-page report of the research grant expenditures. The first report, "Unifying a Career Development Theme...," covers the five goals of the study conducted in Mason City, Iowa, from February 4, 1972 to February 3, 1973, the procedures used, and its results. It was concluded that the study must proceed from career education awareness to implementation of the awareness in the instructional program. In seven pages the body of the report details the execution of the study. It is followed by a 20-page evaluation report conducted by a third party evaluation team which directed their comments to the project's setting, purpose, degree of community involvement, administration, and materials used. The second report, "Models...," covers the same time period but includes seven secondary schools in Iowa as the sites for career education models. The project was directed toward career awareness, accommodation, and exploration. How this was attempted and the scope of its success are topics discussed in the eighteen-page report. Appended to the reports is a guide for a career education program at the elementary level. It consists of three units subdivided by concepts, goals, and activities by academic areas. (AG)
