Coordinated Effort for Career Education. Interim Report.
Grayson County Coll., Sherman/Denison, TX.
Covering the time period of July 1974 through June 1975, the second interim report summarizes the activities of a K-12 career education project conducted in the Grayson County schools in Texas. Each of the project components reports on the year's activities. On the elementary or occupational awareness level, the staff worked with classroom teachers, helping them to integrate career into the daily lesson planning. At the junior high level, the project-developed occupational investigation curriculum was used, along with films, field trips, and resource speakers, to orient the students in five job classification under each of the 15 occupational clusters. The guidance staff conducted group sessions in career guidance, focusing on self-awareness, value clarification, vocational information, and job-seeking skills. By the end of the school year more interest in the program was being shown as demonstrated by increased participation in workshops and other project-sponsored activities. More than one-half of the report is taken up with the third party evaluation of the project. (Author/NJ)
