Lipe, Dewey; Gushee, Theresa
This description of career education activities in Prince George's County, Maryland, was prepared as part of a study conducted to identify evaluated, exemplary career education activities which represent the best of the current career education programs and practices referred to in Public Law 93-380. (See CE 018 212 for the final report of this study.) This document describes one of the ten projects that were selected from among 250 projects submitted. It presents one locale's way of successfully implementing a career education activity, the results of which are educationally significant. Each of the ten projects is described in terms of project overview; program development; materials and activities; parent and community involvement; staffing and management; costs; evidence of effectiveness; and conclusions. The ultimate goal of the particular project reported here was to implement in each junior high school a successful team approach to career education based on four aspects of career education (academic activities, individualized student activities, guidance activities, and exploratory on-the-job or simulated work experiences). The primary subjects are identified as junior high school administrators, counselors, teachers, and students, and the evaluation design is described as a pretest-posttest design using treatment and control group students.
