SCECAMP: Systemwide Career Education Cluster-Based Articulated Model Program (K-College Level). Final Report.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Center for Career and Occupational Education.
The Systemwide Career Education Cluster-Based Articulated Model Program (SCECAMP) was designed to build and expand upon the successful career education projects and innovative programs pre-existing in the New York City school system. The project encouraged participating schools to articulate fully toward the end of providing students with sequential learning experiences and options which would in turn lead to increased student information, decision-making skills, and understanding of personal values. Six overall goals directed the project and included the following elements: (1) staff development, (2) curriculum development, (3) counseling and support services, (4) community resources, (5) dissemination activities, and (6) evaluation. As a result, more than 1,000 school personnel participated in career education staff development programs, and career resource centers were established in model high schools, junior highs, and elementary schools. In addition, several significant products were developed, including career infused lessons in all subject areas (K-12); a career-infused sample curriculum (K-6); a seventh-grade math curriculum dealing with careers which involve use of percentage; a career activities manual (7-12); a student career guidance manual for secondary grades; a career education course of study (7-9); a variety of audio-visual presentations; a handbook of postsecondary educational opportunities in the New York City metropolitan area; and a twenty-hour staff development program. Approximately 30,000 students were exposed to career education as a result of this project. (A replication manual, CE 018 454, accompanies this report.) (BM)
