Career Education Workshops: A Project to Develop, Conduct, and Evaluate Eight Workshops to Instruct Elementary Teachers Concerning Existing Elementary Career Development Curriculums. Final Report.
Lawson, Dorothy M.; Ruddell, Janet C.
The Career Education Workshops project began August 15, 1972 and was completed April 11, 1973. The primary purpose of the project was o conduct eight workshops which would be geographically distributed throughout Illinois on the basis of teacher population density, and would educate 240 or more elementary teachers concerning Illinois' three newly developed elementary career curricula. The four major outcomes set for the workshop participants were: (1) understanding the nature and design of the ABLE (Authentic Basic Life-Centered Education) Model Program, the OCCUPAC Project, and the Career Development for Children Project; (2) selecting implementation strategies for installing elements of the three curricula in local schools; (3) selecting a plan for articulating elements of the three curricula with the total education program in their schools; and (4) selecting demonstrated teaching techniques which could be used in a local shool program. An evaluation team of workshop participants was formed for each workshop. Participant comments indicated enthusiasm for the workshop approach and encouragement for beginning the implementation of career education programs in their schools. The document includes an outline of the presentations made at the workshop. (Author/BP)
