This description of career education activities in Greenland, Arkansas, 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 are reported in a similar format, including the following descriptions: project overview; program development; materials and activities; parent and community involvement; staffing and management; costs; evidence of effectiveness; and conclusions. In this report of the Boston Mountains Educational Cooperative Career Awareness Project (CAP) the ultimate goal is stated as follows: to provide awareness of adult occupations among students, along with regular instruction in basic academic areas. (Special emphasis is placed on showing students that the studying they are doing in school is important and related to work they will encounter outside of school.) The primary subjects are identified as students in grades K-6 in six area schools, and the evaluation design is described as a posttest-only design using comparable groups of treatment and control students.
