A Comprehensive Career Education Model, Grades One Through Fourteen--A Research and Development Project.
Mattei, Otto A., Jr.
An essential task for the 1973-74 project was to expand and refine the totally integrated career education curriculum, K-12, in the Bowling Green, Kentucky school system. Called Project PEOPLE, it provided a teaching strategy that was student and teacher-oriented, with emphasis given to the development of self-awareness and exploration activities. The document offers a description of the problem areas, goals, and objectives for all grade levels, project design procedures, and reports on results and accomplishments. The bulk of the document is devoted to outside evaluation of the project. A third party evaluator, representing the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), concluded that the Bowling Green program has established itself as a suitable national model for the dissemination of career education. It was recommended that the expertise of the staff should continue to be utilized to assist other districts and that funding for program expansion should also be continued. The appendixes contain a bibliography, tables indicating results of attitudinal surveys, sample survey forms, and a list of project-developed materials. (MW)
