Public Service Occupations Curriculum Project: Final Report.
Gipson, Constance F.; Lynn, James J.
The Public Service Occupations Curriculum Project was designed to serve as a master curriculum resource for school districts in the implementation of a career education program in public service occupations. The project produced comprehensive curriculum materials for grades 7-12 and adult education which can be adapted by local school districts to suit their particular needs. The report summarizes the activities of the project and evaluative data gained from field testing the curriculum in vocational and general modes of education. Much of the document reproduces and discusses the results of field-test questionnaires used for students, teachers, and administrators. Test sites in California and New York are described in some detail. The major results of the program were: administrators, teachers, and students generally agreed that the project materials had content validity; teachers felt that the curriculum guides were easy to adapt to their teaching styles and could be used in varying instructional situations; and the program is administratively feasible.
