The Open Door between Community and Classroom...How IPAR Puts It All Together to Provide Action-Oriented Face-to-Face Learning Opportunities to Help Schools Prepare Today's Youth for Tomorrow's World.
Institute for Public Affairs Research, Inc., Portland, OR.
IPAR, whose name originally stemmed from its official name--Institute for Public Affairs Research, Inc.--is described as a nonprofit organization operating in Portland, Oregon, and designed to bring students and their teachers into closer contact with all aspects of the working world by (1) recruiting community resources as speakers in classroom for occupational exploration and to offer work experiences, (2) operating a central scheduling center through which teachers can tap these resources, and (3) providing training and orientation for community participants to upgrade the quality of their involvement. After a brief description of IPAR's activities and services, guidelines are offered for developing an IPAR-type program. These guidelines cover organizational suggestions during initial stages, selling the community and schools, sample outline of procedural steps, and suggested job descriptions for staff of an IPAR-type program.
