EBCE: The Far West Model. A Program Overview.
Far West Lab. for Educational Research and Development, San Francisco, CA.
An overview of the Far West Laboratory (FWL) version of Experience-Based Career Education (EBCE) is presented to acquaint potential adopters with the distinctive features, key roles, learning procedures of the Far West model, and its adaptability to local needs. (Core areas of the FWL-EBCE in which all students are expected to progress are career development, basic skills, and life skills.) Resources, staff roles, student roles, organizing the curriculum, and using resources are discussed. One student's experience with the program is traced to illustrate the key features of the total EBCE process. Other topics covered briefly in the overview are evaluation, highlights of 1973-74 evaluation findings, services available from the Far West Laboratory, and a listing of program materials (handbooks, orientation materials, and procedural aids developed to guide and assist adopters in planning and implementing an EBCE program based on the Far West model).
