California Association of Work Experience Educators. Career Intern Program. 1976-77 End of Year Report.
Huntington Beach Union High School District, CA.; Charter Oak Unified School District, CA.; Chaffey Union High School District, Ontario, CA.
The California Association of Work Experience Educators (CAWEE) Career Intern Program, funded by a federal grant, sought to demonstrate that experience-based career education was a viable and needed alternative to existing learning experiences. Selecting three schools from three districts in the greater Los Angeles area, the program maintained a long-term enrollment of seventy-eight high school students during the course of the 1976-77 year. Specific persons at each school were designated to manage and coordinate program activities. There were periodic meetings of project, school, and/or district representatives. The program established six process- and three student-outcome objectives. (The student-outcome objectives focused on the areas of career development, basic skills, and academic knowledge and skills.) These nine objectives were further defined by a total of twenty-eight criteria. A summative approach was selected as the most feasible method to ascertain program effects and an evaluator was chosen to collect, analyze, and report data. In general, all nine objectives were met. In terms of the twenty-eight criteria specified, twenty-five were met (twelve exceeded) and three were substantially met. Response to the program by students, project staff, non-participating teachers, parents and employer/community resources was consistently and highly favorable. (Data tables, evaluation instruments, and recording forms are included.) (Author/CT)
