Continuing Project in Career Awareness: Grades K Through Six for Union County: Annual Report.
Union County Intermediate Education District, La Grande, OR.
The project was designed to familiarize students, teachers, administrators, parents, board members, and others with the concept of career awareness through personal involvement. Emphasis was placed on the various aspects of assessment, planning, implementation, and continuation of the Awareness Program within the existing curriculum in each school of Union County Intermediate Education District (IED). The project involved 2,300 students in grades one through six, 88 teachers, and 30 to 50 school personnel. The accomplishments of the project include inservice programs for staff development, instructional programs, and materials and curriculum development. Assessment and evaluation materials are appended and make up a major part of the document. Appendix A presents the results of the Spring, 1974 career awareness survey based on a questionnaire given to teachers. Appendix B presents separately the results of a career awareness assessment survey given to teachers and students in Grades 1-2, 3-4, and 5-6. The survey, conducted in October, 1972, was designed to determine the career awareness needs of teachers and students. Two third party evaluations of the project are presented in appendix C and D, with generally favorable observations. (Author/EC)
