Research and Development Project in Career Education [in Kansas].
Rawson, Wilbur S.
The K-8 career education project (Jan. 1, 1972-Aug. 1, 1973) was intended to establish a demonstration testing and development model of career education in a consortium of 18 rural school districts participating in the Unified Schools Association for Vocational Education (USA-VE) organization, encompassing nine counties in northwest Kansas. The project focused on two major phases of inservice teacher education: (1) the formalized inservice training of administrators, counselors, and teachers; and (2) the informalized continuing inservice education of teachers using visiting career awareness assistants and mobile media centers. The report briefly covers: the need for the project, the project's goals and objectives expressed as teacher outcomes, the procedures followed in setting up administrator workshops and inservice teacher education and workshops, selection and utilization of media and instructional materials, developing a handbook for teachers, advisory council operation, information dissemination, and the project's results and conclusions. Concluding the document are four appendixes: USA-VE Unified School Districts' population characteristics, a Career Significance Study questionnaire for teachers, a parental survey form, and an employer survey form.
