Knowledge Interpretation Project. Final Report, October 1, 1978-June 30, 1980.
Bhaerman, Robert D.
A project was conducted to interpret existing reviews and syntheses of research in four areas of educational equity--women, minorities, disabled or handicapped learners, and bilingual populations--as they are related to the world of work. The project was designed to put information about the world of work into the hands of those most likely to use that information: secondary school students, teachers, administrators, and the general public. In phase 1, outlines, formats, and sample portions of the products (teacher materials, administrator brochures, and news releases for student newspapers) were developed. Student materials were developed and refined through drafts, rewriting, and reviews. A dissemination plan and a validation plan were prepared. In phase 2, the final products were distributed to 250 high schools and a similar number of local newspaper editors. Then post cards were sent asking for comments, and a selected number of telephone interviews were conducted. The actual use of materials--particularly by student newspapers--appeared to depend upon school priorities and on the amount of materials received. (A list of recommendations for future activities concludes the document. Appended materials include developed materials and a technical report detailing the content development phase of the project.)
