Project Career Exploration: Final Report.
Schoenberger, R. Laurence
Project Career Exploration's overall purpose was designing and implementing a method of providing juniors and seniors in high school with career exploration opportunities relative to the occupational programs offered by the Waukesha County Technical Institute and other postsecondary institutions. Course outlines make up the body of the report, outlining objectives, materials, and presentation guidelines. Resource addresses are provided for each unit of study. Courses were designed to provide knowledge of the range of occupations within a given career cluster as well as an understanding of the environment, job opportunities, and the types of special skills required for specific occupations. Health careers and hospitality careers were selected by a committee of high school representatives for development into career exploration courses to be offered on a semester basis. The courses, consisting of lectures, field trips, and guest speakers, were taught in the evening once a week for two and one-half hours. (KH)
