Experience Based Career Education. Exemplary Project in Vocational Education. Final Report, October 1, 1979-March 31, 1980.
Hill, C. Wayne
A project entitled Relevant Experiences for Alternative Learning (Project REAL) was conducted to develop an exemplary experience-based career education program in Delaware. The project was designed to provide overall management and support staff for the program, develop the necessary instructional and curriculum materials for approximately sixty students for the first year of operation, to evaluate student process and outcome data, and to develop alternative strategies for demonstrating and disseminating Project REAL materials throughout Delaware. Project activities included continuous staff training through inservice workshops, staff development sessions, and refresher meetings; recruitment of high school juniors and seniors (700 in three years); and recruitment of 300 participating community sites. In addition to completing in-school requirements and electives, REAL students were required to demonstrate certain competencies, participate in short-term community exploration experiences, and complete projects including both career and academic tasks designed to meet individual student needs. Project and school district personnel and a third-party evaluator felt that all project goals were successfully achieved and recommended that a modified version of REAL be adopted on a statewide basis. (Appendixes constituting six-sevenths of the report contain the third-party evaluation report, project REAL components, and REAL publicity.) (MN)
