The Student and the Involved Community: A Scenario. The Community and School-Based Career Education.
Price, Charlton R.; And Others
An alternative form of schooling in a metropolitan community is projected in scenario form, tracing the school-life activities of a fictional 1978 high school junior. The conceptual model is of an open community which allows the student to move freely about in the world of work, integrating academic learning with a variety of placement experiences in the business community. In the model, career education becomes an ongoing and natural process of experimentation, allowing students the opportunity to reach career decisions through exploration and trial and error. The scenario is the last of a set of six planning and resource guides for school practitioners who are responsible for involving the community in career education. The programs and materials can be used in both preservice and inservice activities related to the content area of career education. (NJ)
