Research and Development Project in Career Education. Final Report.
Klaus, Mary Louise
The one and one-half year Raleigh County Career Education project involved over 9,000 students in grades K-12. The project's goals were directed toward recognition of the importance of: career preparation, relevancy of education in career preparation, effective teaching methods, and continuing career assistance for former students. Specific objectives were: career awareness in grades K-6, occupational information in grades 7-9, improving guidance and counseling services at all levels, and development of a placement service for all school leavers. A university extension course in career education and in-service training were available for interested teachers. Program outcomes were the development of a training and general education program for disadvantaged students, the preparation of 84 curriculum units, and a senior high school level cooperative work experience program. A 60-page evaluation report by a third party concluded that the data supported the observation that the project met and frequently exceeded its responsibilities. Two of the 25 appendixes of related materials are biographies of materials and supplies for the junior high orientation component and the elementary awareness component. (AG)
