Innovative Program for Achieving the Goals of Education in Human Relations and Occupational Competencies (Grades 7-12). Final Report.
Daviess County School District, Owensboro, KY.; Owensboro Public Schools, KY.
During the 1974-75 school year, the Owensboro-Daviess County middle and high schools engaged in developing an exemplary program in human relationships and occupational competencies. The purpose of the program was to provide classroom instruction and exploration-placement activities that would enable the student to gain knowledge about himself in relationship to his personal worth, relationship to others, his attitudes, interests, capabilities, and to use this self-knowledge in making occupational decisions. The program involved simulated activities, work experiences, classroom instruction in job acquisition skills, and classroom experiences in clarifying values, identifying interests and abilities, and in developing goal-setting and decision-making skills. A teaching resource guide and student handbook are appended to the project report. The teaching guide is a compilation of learning activities engaged in during the project year. The materials were selected and developed by the teachers to meet the students' needs in occupational competencies through exploration experiences both within the schools and within the community.
