Career Education Program. Troup Middle School. Final Report.
Gagliardi, Vincent M.
The report describes the planning, development, implementation, and evaluation for the 1973-74 school year of a pilot program in career education for an inner city middle school. Career education was infused into the ongoing curriculum in a team-taught interdisciplinary approach. Career clusters were related to the major academic areas utilizing community resource personnel in the school setting, while field trips provided first-hand experience. Parents participated by assisting with clerical duties, accompanying students on field trips, and sharing personal work experiences. Interest surveys and occupational cluster pretests were administered to all students. In program assessment, some of the techniques employed were: evaluation of student's participation, staff meetings, participation and response of parents, community participants' critique, and pretesting and posttesting of student participants. A considerable majority of students improved their scores on the career clusters posttests. The pretests for each of the eight clusters are appended, along with the student preprogram inventory, and the staff and parent questionnaires. (NJ)
