Gill, William B.; Luke, Ann W.
A variety of career education programs that use facilities in an innovative way are reported in this study of 21 programs. Through descriptions, photographs, and drawings, these programs are used to illustrate how educators can use facilities and equipment to support career education programs in classrooms from kindergarten through twelfth grade. The first three chapters discuss career education concepts and goals and show how these relate to the uses that may be made of facilities; discuss program planning issues that need to be considered in selecting, adapting, or developing facilities to support different types of programs; and describe the development of facilities to support the programs. Chapter 4 describes specific features of the 21 sample programs with emphasis on facilities. The descriptions include the issues and considerations that were found significant in each of the programs. Photographs and floor plans are included, as well as names and addresses of program administrators. The concluding chapter contains information sources, an annotated bibliography, and an index.
