Occupational Exploration for Small High Schools. Final Report.
Hereford-Unity School District, OR.
The report describes a program whose primary objectives were to develop a model program wherein the resources of the community college and the secondary school are utilized to expand occupational education opportunities in a manner that related high school education to the world of work, and to provide secondary students with programs of occupational orientation, exploration, occupational cluster training, counseling and guidance in small, isolated high schools whose size and resources have restricted their programs in the past to instruction aimed primarily at preparation for college. The two-year program involved career education training for instructors, aids, and consultants in two relatively isolated Oregon secondary schools; career education instruction for the schools' students by means of learning packages; and a mobile career education laboratory. The report's summary and conclusions indicate that the program was a success. Half the document consists of course outlines for the following 10 courses: welding, small engines, gas engine trouble shooting, construction skills, drafting, commercial design, consumer problems, child care and development, clothing construction, and personal development.
