WORK-ED. (World of Related Knowledge and Educational Development). A Manual for Trainers.
Fraleigh, Virginia A.
This manual is designed to assist personnel responsible for training teachers in the implementation of the World of Related Knowledge and Educational Development (WORK-ED). (The program is a career education course for ninth graders developed to enable students who have not chosen the traditional college-prep high school course to make career choices based on occupational information and ability to select goals.) It is a guidance-based program incorporating basic skills, human values, and career awareness. The material contained in this manual is designed to be presented in three training sessions. Session 1 includes the following: an overview of career education; an introduction to the WORK-ED program and materials; learning activities in values clarification; a brief consideration of community involvement; and a delineation of staff responsibilities. The second training session focuses on evaluation and record keeping, and the third session covers costing and monitoring procedures. Time schedules, information handouts, and related forms are included with the guidelines for each training session. A two-volume curriculum manual (ED 147 486 and CE 018 169) and an administrator's manual (ED 147 485) accompany this document. A project report is also available (ED 150 452). (BM)
