Experience-Based Career Education Staff Development Handbook.
This handbook provides an experience-based career education (EBCE) program director with guidelines and a structure for planning and conducting staff development activities with a minimum of assistance from outside the district. General principles are discussed to offer guidelines to present a staff development program to meet needs. A discussion of planning considers activities in the first and second weeks as well as on-going staff development and progress monitoring. Descriptions are then given of activities designed to clarify EBCE goals, explain the use of program procedures and forms, and provide practice in using the skills needed to operate the program. Each activity description contains (as appropriate) a statement of purpose, recommended approach, key points, suggested discussion questions, list of materials needed, prerequisites for the activity, time required, one or more variations to the recommended approach, and related references. Activities, presented in the recommended sequence for conducting them, are (1) Introduction to Staff Development, (2) Educational Values, (3) Program Overview, (4) Student Program Walk-Through, (5) Resource Development, (6) Project Planning, (7) Implementation Planning, (8) Student Program Planning, (9) Evaluating Project Plans, and (10) Student Advisory Group Meetings. Appendixes include a student program walk-through, implementation planning checklist, and sample student project plans. (YLB)
