LePera Career Activity Program. Final Report.
Truby, Max E.
The purpose of the research project was to determine the effectiveness of a comprehensive career orientation program in increasing awareness of self and of career opportunities in students of rural areas. Conducted with grades 7 and 8 in LePera school in Parker, Arizona from May 1973 to October 1974, the program provided occupational information and concrete experiences which were designed to enhance student self-awareness. Career class activities were ungraded and were coordinated with the regular classroom curriculum. The SRA Career Awareness Survey Two was given as a pretest and posttest to show the amount of growth or regression in career awareness. The results indicated an increase in awareness of the world of work. Greater self-awareness, as evidenced through teacher observation, was demonstrated by students at the program's conclusion. The report includes an outline of the curriculum, the survey instrument, and tabulated test results. (NJ)
