Research and Development Project in Career Education. Final Report.
Russellville Public Schools, AR.
Described in the report are the background, objectives, activities, and accomplishments of a two-year career education project. Program objectives for each year are outlined in terms of overall objectives, and objectives of the elementary, career education, guidance and counseling, and placement components. Major activities of the year included establishment of a career exploration laboratory containing individual study carrels at the high school and development of a "shadowing" program, in which a student spent a working day with a person employed in his or her career interest area. Accomplishments are reported in five main areas of concern: (1) establishment of a close working relationship with the community, (2) inservice activities that emphasized the role of the teacher, (3) provision for continuation of the program after Federal and State funding ceases, (4) stressing more activities in the affective and psychomotor variables, and (5) initiation of placement and followup activities as a continuing process. Appendixes (35 pages) include: a bibliography, forms, examples of career awareness and career exploration classroom activities, and pages from a staff-prepared guide to community occupational information. Based upon observation and personal interviews, the guide provides employment data for each industry and a job profile for each position. (RG)
