Enhancing Career Education: A Report on Cooperative Activities.
Bregman, Ralph; And Others
The purpose of the report is: (1) to develop a conceptual model describing cooperative activities within the school setting; (2) to identify promising practices using cooperative activities to enhance the implementation of career education; and (3) to make recommendations regarding the incorporation of the conceptual model and cooperative activities into the development of a media presentation to be used for career education inservice training programs. The procedures in compiling information about cooperative activities which affect career education programs are described. The study focuses primarily on one aspect of the implementation of career education: the modification of existing structure to bring about program implementation. Practices are suggested to illustrate cooperative activities in school settings with career education programs. The practices included are curriculum legalization, communications, community resources, instructor's handbook, career guidance centers, careers fair, mini-societies, store-front classrooms, and construction technology. Each practice is discussed in terms of description, strategies for implementation, and considerations affecting implementation. Conclusions and recommendations are given. Appendixes related to the procedures of the study include interview forms and interviewing guidelines. (Author/EC)
