Research for Better Schools, Inc., Philadelphia, PA.
This document contains an overview of the Research for Better Schools (RBS) model for experience-based career education (EBCE). (Descriptions of two other EBCE models are included in ERIC documents CE 018 446 and CE 018 447.) Divided into eight sections, this document highlights some of the important features of the model and includes excerpts of student-oriented activities. Section 1 describes the RBS model by explaining the following elements: basic approach; program components; community participation; and staff roles. Section 2 discusses the planning and implementation of the career exploration program. A sample career exploration activity is described in section 3. Section 4 contains the forms which illustrate the procedures students follow in the career specialization activities. The Academic Resource Center, which is an integral part of the RBS/EBCE program, is described in section 5. Group discussion and other guidance exercises are discussed in sections 6 and 7. Finally, section 8 presents the "Learning Style Questionnaire," which is used to identify the learning environment appropriate for the individual student. (BM)
