National Directory of Experience-Based Career Education Programs.
Spotts, Robert L.; Hampson, Barbara Bednarz
This directory of Experience-Based Career Education (EBCE) programs is designed (1) to facilitate communication among EBCE practitioners and potential adaptors by providing programmatic and demographic data about the programs implemented in schools across the country and (2) to serve the National EBCE Association as an initial listing of its membership. Following a brief history of the development and implementation of EBCE, programs are listed in two sections, each proceeded by an index. The first listing, by states, contains sketches on each project in which program, student, and community characteristics are itemized. Names and addresses of contact people are included. The second listing is by program characteristics: classification by source and fidelity of curriculum model, community settings, grade levels, proportion of student's curriculum in EBCE, type of credits available, and maximum length of enrollment. Profiles of the four laboratory-developed models, Appalachia Educational Laboratory, Far West Laboratory, Northwest Regional Education Laboratory, and Research for Better Schools, are included. Also appended is a list of EBCE program goals and the questionnaire used for collection of data. (FP)
