Texas System for Incremental Quality Increase. Final Report, 1976-77.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
Ten of the twenty Education Service Centers (ESC) that provide instructional and technical services to the local school districts in Texas were asked to participate in a project designed to demonstrate infusion and management techniques in career education. Activities were accomplished under the following objectives: (1) establish the transportability of the curriculum-writing process utilized during the project's first year by developing, in a two-day workshop, the level of competence necessary for participating personnel to train teachers in their respective regions; (2) generate at least one infused career education learning module for each teacher participating in a series of workshops held in ten ESC regions (a total of 615 modules were written, 86% of which met or exceeded the established criteria for utility); (3) develop a two-day workshop to train ESC career education coordinators and instructional coordinators in techniques to implement career education at the local education agency level (training and interim consultation were rated as excellent); (4) determine the efficacy of sample learning modules by testing these modules in a demonstration school and by measuring student development prior to and during instruction (substantial student gains were indicated); (5) disseminate the infused career education learning modules; and (6) coordinate the activities of all organizations and agencies involved in the project so that objectives and activities can be efficiently identified, planned, and implemented.
