Project GROW [Green River Opportunities for Work]: History Report.
Project GROW, Owensboro, KY.
A major goal of Project Green River Opportunities for Work (Project GROW) was to develop materials that could be used by teachers in regional schools to help them implement an articulated, developmental career education program from kindergarten through postsecondary levels. The document consists of a regional history report and description of the project and 11 individual district history reports. Each report discusses the purposes of the project and describes the general design, operational base, planned activities, curriculum changes, community involvement, and an assessment. The regional history report offers an overview of the project. A regional career education staff coordinated the program, but each district planned and executed its own program according to individual needs. Major regional activities included the planning and implementing of career education inservice workshops, a massive interest and ability testing program, distribution of career education materials, and a graduate followup study. The development of an articulated developmental career education concept grid for kindergarten through postsecondary levels, and the creation of a matrix and 100 lesson plans were achieved in the final year of the project.
