Directing a Workshop for Implementers of Career Education.
Smith, Genevieve D.
The School Program Advancing Career Education (SPACE) was initiated in nine pilot schools in Greeneville and Greene County Tennessee in January 1973. The initial six months of program planning were climaxed by a 10-day workshop for the planning commission, consisting of 30 principals and staff members. This workshop was a cooperative effort of city and county staff to learn methods for integrating career education into the regular school program. The workshop design is briefly discussed, followed by an outline of the objectives of the planning commission, and the importance, assumptions, scope, and limitations of the effort to introduce the new career education program. Three questionnaires were used to evaluate the workshop: (1) a 20-statement "Attitudes Toward Career Education" questionnaire, administered before and after the workshop and showing an increase from one to four percent in the "strongly agree" category; (2) a 10-question "Final Evaluation of SPACE Workshop by Participants", administered following the workshop to determine the effectiveness of workshop activities, with field trips to industry ranking first; and (3) a 32-item followup administered one year later, relating to the effectiveness of workshop activities. Broad conclusions and recommendations are based on the questionnaire responses. The three questionnaires are appended. (BP)
