A Demonstration Project in Native American Career Education. Final Performance Report.
Banathy, Bela H.; Studebaker, Diana P.
Based on concepts and approaches resulting from the development of a series of Native American Career Education instructional units in a previous project, this project was designed to assist educational staff and Indian community members at four sites to initiate development of career education programs that would use available resources and address their own students' needs. Project activities included gathering information about each site and identifying individuals who would work with the project; designing, developing, and implementing a training workshop in native American career education for educational staff and community members; and evaluating the workshop and trainees' subsequent implementation of career education activities. At the end of the project, each site had a core group of people who had been trained in native American career education, and had made some decisions about the kinds of programs that would meet their needs. The degree to which implementation occurred, and the kinds of activities involved, varied widely from site to site, due primarily to organizational factors. One of the major results of the project was an increased understanding of the conditions which contribute to or inhibit the establishment of native American career education programs. Two major products of the project are the Staff/Community Training Workshop and Implementing Career Education for Native American Students: A Guide. (LRA)
