Alabama State Dept. of Education, Montgomery. Div. of Vocational Education and Community Colleges.
Goals of the career education research project, January 1972-July 1973, at Mobile County Public School System, Alabama, were to produce a model for implementing career education programs in local schools and to developmentally implement a program of career education. Additional goals at Phenix City Public School System, Alabama were to broaden occupationally related experiences of the student and to develop positive attitudes toward work, school, and self (occupational orientation program, elementary school; career education program, middle school; placement service, high school). The Phenix City project involved a 20-day workshop, development of 54 instructional units through which career education could be implemented in the classroom. Student reaction to career education was overwhelmingly positive and teacher attitudes were highly favorable towards the concept of career education. The report includes coverage of leadership training, teacher training, counseling, placement, instruction, community involvement, management, dissemination, and evaluation aspects, and testing results of The Career Development Inventory, self-concept scales, and the semantic differential measure. About one-third of the report is devoted to appendixes. (EA)
