Community Resource Guide for Career Education.
Melton, Dale H.
Ideas, examples, resources, and references for use by those interested in promoting collaborative educational efforts in their community are presented in this manual. Three major purposes of the guide are to bring together current materials on school-community cooperation; to assist in improving the quality of present collaborative efforts; and to encourage the development of new ideas and procedures. The manual is divided into four chapters: (1) Collaboration: Rationale, Necessary Changes, and Proposed Actions; (2) Coordination of School-Community Collaborative Efforts; (3) Resources, Services, and Activities Involving School and Community; and (4) Parent Involvement in Career Education. Extensive appendixes provide examples of school/community/industry cooperation in educational ventures. These examples range from suggestions to resource persons for making effective presentations, and tips on speaking to students, to guidelines for planning and implementing career education workshops, and using business/labor/industry representatives as career development resource personnel.
