The Career Education Institute: Its Goals, Its Activities, and Its Outcomes.
Pepperman, Carl W.; Clark, Marie G.
The Institute's many purposes include: (1) sensitizing educators to the need for career development education; (2) assisting teachers to develop instructional units into which career education activities will be infused; (3) collecting community resources for the teachers' utilization; (4) assisting counselors to back up teachers during implementation; and (5) developing in the teacher the competencies and desire to train others in his district. The program is further described in remarks prepared to accompany a slide presentation: The first year's program took three weeks, during which participants gathered for intensive training. During the first week, participants produced films depicting workers, workers' feelings, and work environments. One month later, an intensive one-week seminar taught the elements of the Thematic Resources and Activities for Career Education (TRACE); each participant developed an instructional unit in his subject area, infused with career education activities. For two months, the group implemented, evaluated, and refined their units in their classrooms. The third week's training was in human relations and change-agentry, using the Human Development Program small group process model, to equip the teachers to effect change in the attitudes and practices of their colleagues. Funded for its second year, the Institute counts this "multiplier effect" a high success. (Author/AJ)
