The Utilization of National, Social, and Human Community Resources in the Process of Student Career Awareness Development.
Peters, Richard Oakes; Fisher, L. Timothy
New Hampshire Supervisory School Union 58 is the site of an experimental schools project, and the career education program developed in the rural area is discussed. Three towns and four schools constitute the Union, and include Northumberland, Stark, and Stratford. Based on a community needs assessment, the National Institute of Education funded project has utilized human and natural resources to foster positive attitudes toward learning and to develop community resource facilities as learning centers. A comprehensive (K-12) career education program utilizing field trips, lesson cards, guest speakers, minicourses, and worksite placement has been developed by staff members, based on career awareness testing and item analysis data. Item analysis has indicated specific occupational areas where efforts can be concentrated to raise career awareness levels in students. Appended material takes up over half the document and includes a variety of program related materials: needs assessment forms; resource guide, with sample lesson plan; area seminar listing; worksite objectives; inservice training strategies; sample awareness lesson; career awareness and maturity inventory; tables with statistical and intervening activities data; and cost analysis.
