Language Experience Based Awareness Plus Hands On Exploration Plus Competency Based Preparation = A School Based Total Career Education Model. Interim Report (July 1, 1975-June 30, 1975).
Admiral Peary Area Vocational-Technical School, Ebensburg, PA.
The report covers the second year of a three-year project to develop a career education continuum for grades K-14 in participating Pennsylvania school districts. Emphasis was on dissemination procedures to schools for the major project components: curriculum infusion for grades 1-8, Singer Carrels exploratory component for grades 6-8, career experience component for grade 9, and other project activities (postsecondary, community, and army reserve militia program). Described in the report are the process and product objectives and project design. For each of the components, major accomplishments, conclusions, discussion, and recommendations are delineated. A 27-page third party evaluation report by Educational Research and Development Associates is included. The evaluation design utilized student testing, survey questionnaires, and observation. It was concluded that the project has been very successful but staff size and financial limitations do not support a large scale effort. It was recommended that resources should be concentrated at particular grade levels or in one target school. Appendixes comprise 162 pages and include materials and information on curriculum infusion, the Singer Carrel program, materials relating to the career experience program, and report of the career militia project.
