Research and Development Project in Career Education. Final Report. Volume I.
Washington State Coordinating Council for Occupational Education, Olympia.
The basic goals of the 1972-1973 project in the Spokane area were (1) to promote teacher awareness and understanding of the concept and process of career education; (2) to promote teacher and community awareness and understanding of student needs; (3) to broaden occupational goals and opportunities for youth between school, community, and the world of work and to promote cooperation between them; and (4) to disseminate the school-based model to school and community interests throughout the State. Two to four staff members from each of four site schools reviewed materials and conducted workshops with interested teachers to develop career related activities to be used in grades K-12. The design was taken to districts outside the project as well. Teacher interest was high in workshops on guidance activities, hands-on projects, use of reference materials, and community resources. Career information centers have been developed in each site school. A series of surveys were conducted during the project and an external evaluation was done at the end; these are included. A manual explaining the basic process developed under the project is in the appendix. A series of special reports is presented in Volumes II and III. (MS)
