[Tigard Career Awareness and Exploratory Project No. 171. Final Report.]
Tigard School District, OR.
The document is the final report of a State-funded elementary career education project conducted by Tigard School District (Oregon) whose purpose was to develop career awareness and positive work attitudes. The project planning, development, and implementation were the responsibility of a team of selected staff members, who developed materials and inservice activities over a two-year period. Outcomes included a teacher's guide, an inservice model, and a field trip model. All teachers and students in the pilot school were affected by the program, and two other elementary schools are now involved. The 20-page report offers background information, describes procedures followed in the project's development, lists and evaluates the results or accomplishments of the project, draw conclusions and states recommendations, and presents demographic and statistical information and a summary of costs. Among the extensive appendixes are materials related to the inservice model, the results of the teacher and community surveys, and a 74-page curriculum guide presenting occupation-related units for grades one through six. Also appended is the final assessment report, whose three parts indicate project accomplishments in terms of original objectives, synthesize the project staff's reactions to the assessment team's questions, and list recommendations.
