Taxonomy and Profiles of Career Education. Volumes 1-4.
Brickell, Henry M.; And Others
The taxonomy is designed to characterize, summarize, and generalize about the career education movement. It describes career education projects by the following paradigm: topics, dimensions, measures, and descriptors. (The four topics are: school district, career education project, career education instructional program, and evaluation of career education project.) Volume 1 provides an 11-page working outline of the taxonomy developed by an analysis of 72 representative elementary and secondary career education projects throughout the United States. It also contains 68 easily-readable charts which analyze to the nearest 10 percent the data of the 72 projects in a form corresponding to the taxonomic outline. Volume 1 also contains an excerpt from the U. S. Office of Education publication, Career Education: Programs and Progress, and 60 pages of sample career education project director's interview forms. Volumes 2, 3, and 4 contain unevenly detailed, alphabetically listed, profiles of over 200 career education projects in the 50 States, which follow this form: district and project information, approach to career education, project staff, school staff, training, community resources, curriculum materials, and ideas that worked. Volume 2 contains profiles for Alabama--Iowa; Volume 3 for Kansas--New Mexico; Volume 4 for New York--Wyoming. (JR)
