Career Resource Center: A "Pre-K to Adult" Model for Career Development. 1973. Final Report.
This is the final evaluation report for the Hackensack Career Development Program whose goals for the 1970-1973 funding period were: to develop a model in which career development concepts may be incorporated into regular classroom activities, to implement the model, and to evaluate and update the career development concept on a continual basis. The project was designed to: (1) make career development learning activities an integral part of the school curriculum from pre-kindergarten through adult education, (2) provide a setting in which experimentation with and evaluation of such activities may be carried on, and (3) offer students and graduates assistance in finding desired and/or suitable employment. Aspects of the career development concept which involves related, sequential, nursery-to-adult experiences were implemented through continuing and intra-curricular projects. Such programs were still being implemented in the third year of the project. Evaluation, another major third-year effort, was aimed at documenting student behavioral changes related to "career experiences" and to assess the process (activity) objectives of the program. Many of the evaluation forms used are included in the appendixes, as are quarterly reports from the project. (SC)
