A Statewide Program in Developmental Vocational Guidance (K-12) and Occupational Preparation for the Changing World of Work. Final Report.
North Dakota State Board for Vocational Education, Bismarck.
The final report describes an exemplary three-year program in vocational guidance and occupational preparation in North Dakota designed to integrate career development activities throughout the elementary-secondary curriculum. The program, which involved both teachers and students in a wide variety of career development activities, resulted in the organization of inservice programs for administrators, teachers, and counselors, and the development of career activity guides, an administrator's guide, 75 fifteen-minute television tapes, selected career guidance material, special intensive training programs for school dropouts, and a model career guidance program. An interim evaluation of the program's third year concluded that of all participating groups only guidance personnel participated less than enthusiastically. The final evaluation of the program suggested that even though the exemplary program did not turn into a statewide project as originally planned, the program did accomplish its overall goal of exposing students to the world of work. The report concluded that the career development process needs more emphasis throughout the curriculum and offers two pages of recommendations to that effect. Ten appendixes covering 40 pages provide such information as a bibliography, sample activities, and a summary of the results of the Career Development Summer Institute. (JR)
