Armstrong, Terry R.; And Others
The purpose of the symposium was to describe the cooperative efforts of the American Institutes for Research (AIR), the Santa Clara Unified School District, and several other California school districts in the development and implementation of a career education curriculum. "Career Education Implementation in the Santa Clara Unified School District" by Norman Carter focused on elementary classroom models representing 10 different teaching/learning styles and the accompanying challenge of infusing career education in all these classrooms. James A. Dunn from AIR presented an overview of the federally funded AIR Career Education Development Project, which was charged with the development of a comprehensive career education curriculum that could serve as a master resource for school districts introducing career education into their programs. John Kroll of AIR described the development and characteristics of the AIR instructional units that show how career education can be adapted into the traditional curriculum. Teacher training for career education instruction was discussed by Jay Egan of AIR; the basic implementation strategy used was a workshop/practicum format. Terry Armstrong of AIR described the formative and summative evaluation procedures used for the annotated career education bibliography, instructional objectives catalog, curriculum guides, sample lesson modules, and teacher training materials.
