CSIU Career Education Institute: Final Report: Vol. I.
Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit 16, Lewisburg, PA.
The document is the first volume of the final report on an inservice training institute in career education; five teams of K-12 educators from three different school districts in one region of Pennsylvania in the three one-week sessions, which were held at four-week intervals. The goals of the institute were to improve the scope of the participants' career education concepts, to increase their career education strategies and techniques and their commitment to career education, and to develop career education curriculum units and usable classroom media. The report briefly describes the procedures followed in organizing and conducting the institute, presents and analyzes the findings of surveys of the participants' attitudes and reactions, and concludes with an outline of the career education curriculum unit which was used to train the educators during the institute. Among the conclusions are these: A curriculum infusion model appears to be a viable strategy for introducing career education elements into a school; intensive sessions with intervals between them and interaction among participants from different districts facilitated the training. That participant teacher and counselor aides did not effectively support teachers' implementation of units is attributed to the omission of a specific training module for aides. (AJ)
