A Developmental Program for Preparing All Students for the World of Work.
McKinney, William Lynn
Focusing primarily on test data from locally developed tests, the document presents results and an evaluation of the first year of a program developed for elementary grades at Dutemple School, Cranston, R. I. The first section discusses behavioral objectives and presents pre- and posttest results, grade by grade tabulated to show levels of attainment of objectives. Recommendations suggest more concentration on identifying and helping students who are not achieving satisfactorily. Teacher evaluations and recommendations are presented in the second section, with a staff questionnaire providing data. It was felt that students became more aware of a variety of careers and benefited from "hands on" experiences, but teachers expressed a need for better program administration and preparation, and the availability of inservice training. Project activities are illustrated through photographs, in the third section, and include log cabin construction, the making of career scrapbooks, and model airplane building. A sample of the staff questionnaire is appended. (LH)
