The Appalachian Education Satellite Project (AESP) was created to demonstrate the feasibility of conducting graduate level courses for teachers in isolated regions using communication satellites. One of the AESP's four projects was an eight session career education series for 234 elementary school teachers given at 15 sites throughout the Appalachian region. The conclusions reached were: (1) teachers demonstrated a significant gain in the cognitive area; (2) teachers indicated a significant change in attitude toward career education; (3) teachers felt the course provided them with more useful information than a campus education course; and (4) teachers are continuing to use the career education techniques they learned in their own classrooms. The appendixes cover course outline, lab materials, and various questionnaires used in the formative evaluation process. (NR)
