Developmental Vocational Education Program. A "5 to 12" Model for an Urban School District. Final Report.
Sims, William I.
The first of the document's major components is the report of the Cleveland three-year career development program. Intended to bridge the gap between school and earning a living for students in an urban poverty area, the program begins in elementary school and continues through high school. Eight goals and related performance objectives were delineated. The program included occupational information and orientation and career exploration. Among the program's accomplishments were the development of sound slides and a curricula guide and the use of both the cluster concept and discipline concept in the program presentation. Appendixes include an annotated bibliography and a list of instruments used. The second major component is the 76-page report of the final evaluation committee. It concludes that the program results in significantly greater occupational knowledge for its students but was not successful in imparting more positive attitudes towards work related concepts or expanding expressed job preferences. The third major component describes the one-year participation by Catholic schools at the intermediate school level. In 117 pages, the program rationale and objectives are defined, and lesson plans used by grades 4-6 are outlined. (AG)
