Alabama State Dept. of Education, Montgomery. Div. of Vocational Education and Community Colleges.
The project reported in the document focused on two aspects of career education programs. One focus was on determining effective methods for implementing career exploratory experiences for junior high school students. The second focus was on determining effective procedures for establishing a comprehensive school-based placement service for all exiting students. The project was conducted in 10 Alabama schools, five for each component, during the 1973-74 school year. The exploration component found that the most effective method for providing exploratory experiences involved a combination of on-the-job experiences, work-setting observations, visiting resource persons, a career resource center, and printed materials. The procedures followed, and results achieved by the placement component for each site are discussed in the report. Appended materials (36 pages) include: site selection criteria, program objectives and administative guidelines, procedural suggestions for individual project site, and a followup questionnaire.
