Henderson County Vocational Education Curriculum Integration Project: History Report, July 1, 1970-June 30, 1973.
Henderson County Public Schools, Henderson, KY.
The objective of the three-year project was to synthesize career education concepts from the literature and from practice into a continuous occupational information program for grades one through twelve. A variety of methods was used to implement the program: teacher-made lesson plans, "hands on" activities, and in-service workshops among others. The most effective method was the utilization of community resources. As a result of the program, career education has won acceptance within all phases of the school system and the community. Curriculum guides have been developed, resource centers established, and student awareness of career opportunities has increased markedly. External evaluation (in "on-site" visitations) and internal evaluation (in the form of various instruments) have been continuous. It was possible to conclude that the Henderson County school system has changed from the traditional subject oriented curriculum to one more life centered. (Statistical data are included to support the conclusions.) (AG)
