A Manual for the Implementation of a Rural-Based K-12 Career Education Program. Careers Resource Project.
Developed by the Careers Resource Project staff (which is nearing the end of a three-year federally funded effort to promote career education in K-12 classrooms of rural Indiana), this manual is designed for use by the facilitator of a career education program and is based on experiences of the Careers Resource Project. Following brief introductory information on the project and factors related to its implementation, four major topics are discussed in separate sections. Section 1, on administrative aspects of a project/program, covers pre-funding planning, planning phase related to notification of funding, staffing, budgeting, funding sources, public relations, and evaluation. Section 2, on program development, discusses initial contact, faculty orientations, initial implementation, and inservice and consultation. Materials and equipment, the third section, focuses on selection, use, and types of instructional materials, noting that career education materials are an integral part of the total program. In the final section, various factors relating to the development of a senior high school comprehensive placement program are discussed: the meaning of comprehensive placement, its relationship to career education, those served, and those implementing. The Careers Resource Project model is also briefly presented along with a discussion of placement elements particularly relevant to a rural setting. Appendixes comprising over half of this manual include such information as an outline of potential teacher inservice workshops; a workshop checklist; workshop evaluation form; a seventy-page guide for infusing career education concepts into the K-12 curriculum, including behavioral objectives, career education ideas, and activities; a guide to the use of mobile units; and various student and evaluation forms.
