Comprehensive Career Education Project. An Incremental Project. Summary of Results for 1975-76.
Maine Univ., Orono. Coll. of Education.
Evaluation results are summarized for the first year (1975-76) of a project designed (1) to demonstrate a comprehensive and coordinated career education program in the Bangor, Maine, public school system, which could serve as a model for the northern section of Maine, (2) to demonstrate procedures for integrating and implementing career education at the university/college level, and (3) to demonstrate procedures for developing a state plan for career education. Project data generated the following conclusions: (1) The inservice model presented to the public school level was effective in producing gains in career knowledge, in creating more positive attitudes toward career education, and in implementing activities in the classroom; (2) key components as identified by teacher participants in inservice workshops were demonstrations by experienced teachers of career education activities, participation in actual experiences suggested for students, follow-up support by consultants for teacher career education activities, and small group meetings within grade and subject areas to discuss implementation of career education concepts; (3) career education is an accepted goal by the State Board of Education but not necessarily a priority item for funding support in Maine; (4) postsecondary teacher educators or administrators in general do not perceive career education as a priority item; and (5) the inservice training model for demonstrating career education philosophy, concepts, and practices is a viable procedure.
