Career Development and Meaningful Exploratory Experiences to Middle School Students in Southern Indiana Utilizing Mobile Design Educational Units. Interim Report.
Indiana State Board of Vocational and Technical Education, Indianapolis.
Covering the time period of July 1974 to June 1975, the report documents project activities of the second year of a three-year career education project in southern Indiana. A total of 37 school corporations in an economically depressed rural area participated in an effort to infuse career education concepts into their existing curriculum. Through inservice activities, teachers experienced the techniques involved in unit writing and curriculum development and were exposed to the variety of ways career related concepts may be integrated into the subject areas. Both teachers and students became better informed of the career opportunities available in their communities and observed firsthand, workers functioning in their roles. As a result of the mobile units, a large population became acquainted with the variety of resource materials available in the area of career education. Utilization of community personnel in program development increased the community's awareness of career education and its many merits. Appendixes contain a model for the infusion of career education concepts into current curriculum, public relations materials, teacher performance objectives (K-12), and the third party evaluator's summary of the second operational year. A final attachment (over one-third of the document) provides teacher and student questionnaires, and a summary of teacher interview results. (Author/NJ)
