Project CLIMB (Career Ladder Infusion Model Building). [Volume I: Final Report, 1977-78].
A project was designed to develop, field test, and publish a career infusion unit curriculum for grades 10-12 in the Garden Grove Unified School District. Students at one project school, two transport schools, and a comparison school formed the study sample. A third party evaluated the accomplishments of objectives for the following program components: instruction, staff development, parent-community, guidance, evaluation, project management, and curriculum development. The one project and two transport groups exceeded the comparison group's scores on the English section of the Comprehensive Test of Basic Skills (CTBS). Second-year students scored significantly higher than first-year students on the attitude section and two parts (knowing about jobs and choosing a job) of a career maturity inventory. The report contains curriculum materials for the following areas: English Literature II, English Composition II, Algebra I, World History, Essentials of Composition, Geometry, U.S. History, Civics, Senior Math, English Composition--Advanced, and Spelling/Vocabulary. Materials contain curriculum concepts and objectives, career concepts and objectives, activities, and resources. General supplemental activities and career cluster information are appended. (CSS)
