This description of career education activities in Coloma, Michigan, 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 reported 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 Coloma Career Development Centered Curriculum (CDCC) project was to provide career development instruction to rural students at the elementary level. (This instruction is designed especially to increase students' awareness of life roles, to help them formulate realistic self concepts, and to foster the development and use of decision-making skills.) The primary subjects are identified as approximately 1,600 students in grades K-6, and the evaluation design is described as a pre- and posttest design using comparable groups of treatment and control students.
