Career Education in Pennsylvania: The Second Year Evaluations of Four Major Projects.
Ciavarella, Michael A.; And Others
The evaluation report for the 1973-74 project year examines Pennsylvania's four major career education projects. The grade 10-14 component at Edenburg focuses on identifying 20 career areas, identifying behaviorally described skills required for the various occupations, developing the required skills through the use of tasks, modules, and units, and using computer hardware and software to manage the system. The elementary component in Crawford County focuses on integrating career and self-awareness with baskc K-6 academic materials, exposing students to a range of career clusters, individualizing students' learning programs, and using existing computer facilities for storing and retrieving career oriented curricula. The junior high component in Philadelphia focuses on fusing career education concepts, experiences, and resources into existing curricula, providing career exploratory experiences, providing an effective guidance and counseling program, and developing a Career Education Resource Center. The K-12 component in McKeesport focuses on a series of career oriented assumptions: reality-bound assumptions, self-oriented assumptions, and personalized assumptions. In general, each evaluation describes the program and the means of evaluating program objectives, summarizes the evaluation effort, and provides conclusions and recommendations. Appendixes (50 pages) provide additional materials relevant to the respective evaluations. (JR)
