An Exemplary Project to Demonstrate Transporting Career Education Techniques in Kansas and to Provide a Career Education Preservice Component to a Teacher Education Program. Final Report.
Kansas State Dept. of Education, Topeka.
A project was conducted (1) to determine the effectiveness of using career education practitioners from the field in providing prospective teachers with an understanding of career education concepts relative to teaching responsibilities and (2) to demonstrate and compare the effectiveness of delivering career education activities through the use of five different organizational bases. Before the implementation of the project, pretest instruments were administered to teachers, student teachers, students, and parents to determine the level of understanding of career education among these different groups and to determine the effectiveness of the project activities. A posttest was later administered after the completion of one year's activities. The major activities accomplished by the project were the development and dissemination of a planning and implementation guide; numerous workshops and in-service meetings; a career education newsletter; a search file; and a collection of resource materials. A comparison of the test results between experimental (project participants) and control (nonparticipants) groups revealed no significant differences except in the area of teachers' attitudes toward career education. (Also included are individual region reports, audit reports, and assessment data from all regions on each instrument.) (Author/BM)
