Articulation of Occupational Orientation, Education and Placement in Private and Public Elementary, Secondary and Post Secondary Schools. Final Report.
Conducted from May 1971 to July 1974 at the Lakeshore Technical Institute in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, the comprehensive career education program was established initially to serve 15 school districts but was redirected into a "model school" approach serving four schools. Business, industry, and labor became involved and loaned support to the project. A K-14 curriculum guide was developed and career information centers established in all four schools--elementary, junior high, senior high, and postsecondary. A job bank of microfiche proved to be the most effective activity to bring interested high school students into the career information center. Results of the third party evaluation were positive for teacher and counselor roles and attitudes, the career centers development and use, community awareness and interest, staff workshops, student awareness of post high school education, and career awareness in elementary children. The report describes the project, presents a 356-page evaluation report, and includes various project related materials: (1) program models, (2) sample handouts, (3) graduate followup study, (4) manpower survey, (5) list of science related careers resources, (6) guidelines for pupil services, and (7) a 54-page value rated list of career education resource materials.
