Summative Evaluation of Career Education in the Secondary School Course; Fall, 1974. Technical Report No. 11.
Maynard, Diane; And Others
A communication satellite was utilized as part of a 16 session career education course for secondary school teachers given at 15 sites throughout the Appalachian region. The conclusions reached were: (1) teachers preferred the sessions which presented examples of career education and were "how to do it" in format; (2) teachers preferred lab activities in which student interaction predominated; (3) teachers would use the CBRU (Computer Based Resource Units) and AIM/ARM (Abstracts of Instructional Media and Research Materials in Vocational Education) information systems if they were installed in their school systems but wanted more clarification of their usage; (4) teachers demonstrated significant gains in the cognitive area; (5) teachers indicated significant change in attitude towards career education; and (6) teachers indicated they are using more career education activities in their own classrooms. The appendixes include the names of the 35 participants, the lab activities, and various questionnaires used during the formative evaluation process. (NR)
