A High School Internships Program in Career Education for the Gifted and Talented. Final Report.
Eugene School District 4J, OR.
The booklet presents the final report of an evaluation of a high school internship program in career education for the gifted and talented in Eugene, Oregon. Program problems discussed involve such aspects as recruiting sponsors, coordination, selecting interns, and program expectations. Among the findings reported are that students did develop greater awareness of their career goals, aptitudes, and interests as a result of the program; that students adjusted quickly and well to work site demands, except where there was insufficient agreement on the role the student would play; and that students clearly grew in their understanding of the kind of organization in which they were placed, but did not demonstrate the ability to generalize about the qualities, skills, and knowledge of executives or managers. Recommendations presented center around the areas of program coordination/management and program goals. Summaries and analyses of interviews with several of the students are also provided, along with a list of evaluation activities and timelines. Included in the appendixes are evaluation worksheets and questionnaires. (DLS)
