Project FOCUS. Methods and Materials for Training Career Educators. Final Report. Volume 1--Project Description.
Resnick, Harold S.; And Others
Program Methods and Materials for Training Career Educators (Project FOCUS) established and accomplished three major objectives: (1) to identify, select, and provide inservice career awareness staff development training for elementary school teachers; (2) to design, develop, and evaluate a replicable, exportable, and practical staff development Training Manual (CE 022 608) that can be used to train personnel to implement elementary school career education programs; and (3) to research the effectiveness of the career awareness Training Manual and to validate the efficiency of matching teacher variables to training procedures (reported in CE 022 609). Developmental, managerial, and evaluative activities were conducted at Boston (Massachusetts) University, School of Education. Four field-site school systems in eastern Massachusetts were utilized. At these sites, eighty elementary school education personnel received comprehensive career awareness inservice training. This training concentrated on classroom curriculum infusion strategies. The inservice component not only delivered direct services to these educators, but served as the field-test segment for the development of the Training Manual. (This report provides a general description of the developmental and organizational activities which comprised the program effort.) (BM)
