Career Education Through Multi-Experience Centers.
Quincy Public School District 172, IL.
The overall objective of Career Education Through Multi-Experience Centers is to develop and implement a comprehensive career education program for special education in the Quincy, Illinois public schools. Part one of the report provides statistical data on the project. The bulk of part two analyzes the progress made toward accomplishing the program's six objectives (design 10 multi-experience centers, develop appropriate student evaluation instruments, increase students' career awareness, improve students' attitude toward their educational environment, increase the regular education staff members' acceptance of special education students, and develop more positive self concepts in secondary level students), with separate consideration of operational and evaluation procedures, the extent to which these procedures were implemented, and the generally positive evaluation results for each objective. Other project topics covered in part two include: expectations; effects on other schools and on cooperating community organizations; activities to assure continuation; and objectives, procedures, and evaluations for 1975-76. Part three, a dissemination report, lists newspaper articles about the project, project presentations, and requests for various types of project information. Five appendixes include detailed descriptions of the 10 career centers, evaluation instruments, reactions and evaluations of multi-experience centers, State certification of personnel, and the project brochure.
