An Integration of Career and Consumer Education and Reading and Language Arts Program Goals. Final Report.
Portland Public Schools, OR. Area III Office.
The final report of this exemplary project conducted from July 1974 through June 1975 describes the development of appropriate guides for teaching career and consumer education concepts in grades 1-3 in Area III, Portland Public Schools, Oregon. Reading instruction materials adopted by the schools for 1975-81 were used as the basic information source to prepare materials for teachers and students to help them develop an awareness of primary grade-level concepts in career and consumer education. Major project activities included writing guides for the three basic reader series to show how to integrate several curriculum areas, to disseminate research products among the area schools, and to determine which goals are considered essential for the primary grades. An evaluation indicates that the project goals were accomplished, including staff and curriculum development and the development of materials, activities, and instructional management systems. Appended project materials (53 pages) include: committee job descriptions, syllabus for an inservice course, lists of pertinent audiovisual and other media, form for evaluating prototype teaching guides, cross-reference of goals and concept-descriptor terms in basic readers, learning activity modules, and course goal statements.
