Donohue, Stephen, Comp.; Hadac, Ralph, Comp.
Project "What About Vocational Education?" (WAVE) originated as a series of in-service training programs offered for graduate credit to teachers, counselors, and administrators at various locations in Washington to assist students in their development of the awareness, attitudes, and skills necessary for employment. Results of some past projects are organized and summarized for evaluation, reference, and follow-up purposes. A summary of recent projects at the University of Washington and Central Washington State College are outlined as to schools, number working on project, grade level, program length, and also are coded for output and elements of the program. A more complete summary is included of fifty projects at Washington State University which lists prime objective, grade levels, activity and description, short/long-range outcomes, and persons to contact. The latter summaries cover a variety of topics such as vocational awareness, self-concept, attitudes, students' job knowledge, decision-making, individual interests and aptitudes, occupational exploration, course selection, career planning, vocational guidance for special students, vocational orientation, and work experience programs. An outline summary of career awareness programs throughout Washington State is also included that ranges from grades K-14 and covers activity, special interest features, and persons to contact. (EA)
