Guidelines for the Planning Year. Project Trident.
Lincoln Community High School, IL.
A major goal of education should be to prepare every young person leaving school to enter higher education or to enter useful and rewarding work. This is the goal of Project Trident, a comprehensive career education program being developed at Lincoln Community High School, Illinois. The project, in its planning year, is directed toward secondary level instruction and was designed in response to student and adult questionnaires. It emphasizes occupational counseling, a wide range of career choices, student self-direction, and flexibility of entry at various program stages. Behavioral objectives are identified in three Career Education Modules (CEMs) and are planned for the greatest degree of flexibility. CEM-1 provides career education information through a three-week core of activities offered at the beginning of each semester using formal presentations and mini courses. CEM-2 provides career education experiences through classroom units in the academic classrooms throughout the year. CEM-3 provides career education experiences through an individualized self-instructional approach. Two final chapters discuss materials and aids and student movement through the career education program. (MW)
