Career Education in the Arts. A Report from the Center for Career Education in the Arts.
Carroll, Karen Lee
This report describes the Center for Career Education in the Arts' (CCEA) alternative training program for artistically gifted and talented high school students interested in pursuing careers in the visual arts, dance, music, theatre, and writing. Following an introduction, hypothesis statement, and identification of project goals, the first of three sections presents a review of the project setting, planning procedures, staff involvement, and pilot semester evaluation. Section 2 describes the activities used in implementing the curriculum goals which were to develop (1) the students' self-knowledge and understanding, (2) students' knowledge about work, (3) decision making skills, and (4) parents' understanding of their child's talents and values as related to career decision making. For each goal specific objectives are stated and activities are described. The third section contains an abstract of the third party evaluation, selected statements from students, and a retrospective review of the career education sequence as seen by students and faculty. The evaluation abstract states that the program was successful in increasing students' positive attitudes towards themselves and towards work in arts; and career decision making skills were increased. Conclusions and recommendations are also presented. (LRA)
