Career Education Infusion with Language Arts/Science Project. Final Report.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem. Career and Vocational Education Section.
To infuse career education with language arts and science, a task force of Oregon educators developed, evaluated, and finalized a set of seven career education competencies for secondary language arts and science teachers, 7-12. These competencies cover the following areas: attitudes toward life and careers; job search method and job adjustment; community resources; parent involvement; relationship of language and science areas to careers; communication skills; and career choices in relation to abilities and interest. A curriculum team of educators developed, field tested, and finalized a set of instructional material packages (CE 019 666-672) based on the seven career education competencies. An instructional team trained twenty-five secondary language arts and science teachers to function as a statewide cadre to conduct inservice training sessions for interested local education agencies. Evaluation was built into each major stage of the project. The final stage, involving the actual cadre training sessions, was assessed by a third-party evaluator. (Evaluation instruments and a summary of the results are appended.) (Author/BM)
