The Community Resource Component of the Career Education Project: Part 4.2.
Edelman, Judith West
The document develops a community resources model that compliments the other components of the career education project. It is also designed to be used by all school systems and provides suggestions for resources from broad areas. The introductory information defines community resources as "people, places, and things" and presents a rationale for utilizing these resources. For the administrator and coordinator, the manual outlines the key steps for the utilization of community resources: gaining top administrative support, designation of coordinator of school-community relations, internal planning, development of a resource directory, gaining support of building principals and teachers, creation of general advisory committees, and the formation of an industry-education alliance. For the teacher, there are guidelines for the effective use of community resource volunteers in the planning, contacting, preparing, and evaluating steps. Suggestions for class discussion, checklists for career field visits and field trips, and ideas for follow-up experiences are presented. Sample forms for collection, preparation, and evaluation of resources and a bibliography complete the manual. (JB)
