A Work Experience Video Tape Satellite Project for EMR Students. Final Report.
Caci, William P.
A project produced and field tested a selected set of video tapes and instructional material illustrating actual student performances and job requirements while on a high school work experience program. Objectives were (1) to enhance on-the-job student performances via immediate audio and visual feedback, (2) to establish a library of realistic videotapes of students performing in local occupations and businesses, (3) to supply prevocational instructors with career awareness tools, (4) to illustrate to all interested parties the performance and degree of involvement of students in the work program, (5) both to provide prospective employers an overview of work program students and to compliment the involvement of employers now involved with the program, and (6) to bolster confidence and self-esteem of students in the work program, especially educable mentally retarded (EMR) students. Portable videotape equipment was used to tape performances of students actually working on their respective jobs. Unedited tapes were shown to students for work evaluation purposes. Then tapes were edited into ten- to fifteen-minute presentations, and teacher packets of lesson plan material were developed for each. Packets and tapes were field tested at junior and senior high and college levels. The overall conclusion is that all objectives were met, with most success in objectives 3 and 6. A list of the tapes by occupation and three sample teacher packets are appended. (JT)
