Career Education in the Norwalk Public Schools. Exemplary Project. Final Report.
Parker, Forrest E.
During the 1974-75 school year, the major thrust of the second year of the exemplary project was the integration of career education into the curriculum at all levels of instruction. Career education was taught by the regular classroom teacher in all elementary grade schools. Detailed unit plans were developed and published as a guide for teachers. In the middle schools career education was introduced in the major subject disciplines, and simulated work experiences were expanded by the addition of a communications unit. At the high school level the career education unit was continued in all ninth grade civics classes. Other activities, such as career conferences, library career corners, day with the worker, career interest inventories, and counseling, were carried on and refined. Over 125 business leaders in the community participated as resource persons and guest speakers. Listed in the appendixes are teacher-developed lessons and the frequency of their implementation by school. Included also are lists of guest speakers, their firms, and the occupational clusters they represent. Brief reports of the several career conferences that were held throughout the year are also appended. (Author/NJ)
