Student-Based Career Awareness Curriculum Project in Career Education: Final Report.
Springfield Public Schools, OR.
The report describes a project whose major thrust was to personalize students' learning experiences, through the community's occupational environment, in developing a strong guidance-based career education program for elementary grades. A series of staff workshops and small study groups focused on the development of career awareness programs and particular units for each grade level. Major outcomes of the project were: integration of career awareness with social studies curriculum; development of guidance activities at each level; development of a field trip model; development of a student services program; refinement of student activities; and development of a program utilizing community volunteers from junior high, senior high, community college, and school patrons. An outside evaluation report of the project concluded that the amount of staff involvement was an asset to the project, but that the failure to strictly correlate curriculum changes with accepted career awareness objectives constituted a handicap. The final report includes a quarterly report of the project which presents both long- and short-range goals, objectives, and activities for the project. The report ends with conclusions, recommendations for areas of future development, and a brief summary. Demographic and statistical information and a summary of project costs are included.
