Instructional Systems Options and Guidelines for the Dissemination and Implementation of Career Education. Career Education: Volume 4.
Hall, Douglas C.; And Others
Part of the AIR Career Education Curriculum Project for grades K-9, the handbook is intended for school district administrative personnel considering introduction of career education for their districts. Report 1 lists and describes procedures for career education implementation, with potential options for each procedure. Focus is on the first, third, and sixth steps of a systems approach. Sound program planning (step 1) includes needs assessment and resource inventory. Organizing the program (step 3) considers internal and external factors, while installing the program (step 3) includes potential developmental sources, major instructional material developmental stages, and developmental options. Program evaluations (step 6) covers design, phases, measures, communication aspects, and resources. A variety of school settings are provided as examples for adopting and combining options--a large suburban school district, an organization of small rural school districts, an urban setting, and a rural setting. Report 2 provides a description of the AIR theoretical model for dissemination, implementation, and utilization (DIU) for a career education curriculum. Along with research results relevant to the model design, various aspects of the model are discussed. Evaluation of AIR implementation efforts in developmental and nondevelopment schools are included as a tentative assessment of the impact of the DIU model. (EA)
