Project EVA: Early Vocational Awareness.
Cox, William W.
Three elementary schools in districts of the Seattle, Washington area were the target of project EVA (Early Vocational Awareness) which developed career awareness resource materials. The document consists of two major components: sample instructional materials (40 pages) and information about the project (60 pages). The 14 multi-use resource packages designed for instructional use include two for each grade (K-6) and contain physical activities and supporting media. Each package emphasizes a cluster of occupations and contains objectives, activities, materials such as field trip site suggestions, available resource speakers, a teacher's guide, and testing materials. Guidelines used in development included emphasis on a greater number of occupations, additional occupations for girls, methods for finding and grouping occupational information, emphasis on ability and training, realistic job descriptions, relation of classroom skills to future jobs, use of a variety of media including "hands-on" experiences, and integration of material within existing curriculum. The appended final report includes teacher and student evaluations and student growth data. (Author/KJ)
