Thomas Buffington and Associates, Washington, DC.
This report is one of two documents which provide short summaries of career education projects funded under the provisions of Section 406 of Public Law 93-380 during fiscal year 1977. Each project summary follows a similar format which includes identifying information (title, grantee, project director), major objectives, project activities, evaluation, communications, and demographic information. The 137 projects summarized in the two documents are grouped into six categories: (1) incremental quality improvements in K-12 career education programs (twenty-one projects); (2) effective career education methods and techniques in senior high schools, community colleges, adult and community education agencies, and higher education (twelve projects); (3) effective career education methods and techniques for special segments of the population (handicapped, gifted and talented, minority, and low income youth) and for the reduction of sex stereotyping in career choices (twenty projects); (4) effective methods and techniques for training and retraining persons conducting career education programs (thirteen projects); (5) communication of career education philosophy, methods, program activities, and evaluation results (eighteen projects); and (6) state plans for the implementation of career education in local educational agencies (fifty-three projects). Project summaries in categories 1-5 are found in this document; the fifty-three project summaries in category 6 are included in a companion document, CE 017 150. (BM)
