A Pre-Service Program in Environmental Occupations.
Stitt, Thomas R.
The Pre-Service Program in Environmental Occupations began in September 1972 and was completed in September 1973. The primary objectives of the program phase were to design and structure an environmental occupations teacher education program and internship experience and to recruit initial prospective teachers to participate in the experience. The objectives of the training phase included selecting five participants, enrolling them in the program, and supervising them throughout their internships. The procedures were somewhat complicated by the fact that both phases occurred simultaneously. Nevertheless, it was possible to design, through a seminar program, a curriculum and appropriate experiences to equip the participants with the competencies needed for occupational education in the area of environment. The project has fostered greater interest in career education in environmental occupations and has resulted in information and materials useful for later projects and studies in this area.
