Cultural Institutions & Career Education. Final Performance Report.
Hein, George E.; Marcus, Stephen
The education directors from fifteen museums and performing companies in Boston and Springfield, Massachusetts, were trained to develop and pilot career education programs for K-12 students using the resources of their institutions. The project was divided into three segments and, during each segment, a series of training seminars were conducted to meet the specific objectives of the segment. Segment one acquainted the education directors with the general assumptions and goals of career education. Each director developed a career information package which incorporated the skills, training requirements, and attitudes which characterized jobs and careers within and related to their respective institutions. The second segment provided the directors with instructional skills to enable them to design and pilot career education programs. This involved joint planning sessions with partner schools. In the last segment, to insure the continued involvement of these cultural institutions in career education, the directors developed long-range plans for the implementation of career education programs at their institutions. A project evaluation indicated that the objectives were all essentially achieved. (This report discusses the training projects carried out during the project, analyzes the career information packages, and generally describes the pilot programs and the long-range plans. A report regarding the training seminars is appended.) (EM)
