Project MODEL: Mobile Occupational Development Education Laboratories. Second Annual Report.
Massachusetts State Dept. of Education, Boston. Div. of Occupational Education.; Nashoba Valley Technical High School, Westford, MA.
The report presents a record of the second year activities of Project MODEL (Mobile Occupational Development Education Laboratories). Included are a brief description of the project and an examination of the various operation activities; components, the development of nine objectives, their status, and their disposition; financial verification; and a projection. The document serves as a clear indicator of both the successes and difficulties encountered during the second operational year and what has been accomplished to date. The project was designed as an experimental program to help develop in-house, on-going programs in institutions and agencies which serve the handicapped and disadvantaged. Four mobile laboratories (business education, small engine repair, distributive education, and vocational education) are staffed with teachers and aides, and deliver an alternative system of audiovisual, self-paced, individualized instruction which provides the stimuli for learning experiences involving personal interaction, exposure, training, and evaluation. The Project MODEL summer workshop attempted to (1) maintain and repair the mobile units' interiors and exteriors, (2) review the usage and operation of all audiovisual equipment, and (3) computerize the description of its instructional programs in cooperation with Project CAREER. Appended are tables showing student characteristics and services provided. (Author/BP)
