School Improvement Processes in Career Education.
Smey, Barbara A.
This manual is designed to review those topics which should be considered when initiating a school improvement effort in career education. These materials, representing a one-day workshop, consist of seven activities. Topics covered in the activities are an overview of the workshop, work flow and a work-flow diagram, needs assessment, career education student outcomes, career education program elements, and developing an element-outcome grid. Each activity contains a statement of purpose, its estimated time, an explanation of its format, and specific implementation suggestions. Eleven activity handouts are provided. These include a workshop agenda, sample work-flow diagrams, procedures for developing a work flow, career education definitions, sample maxims for needs assessment, key needs assessment questions, sample career education student outcomes from state plans, discussion of career education student outcomes, an element-outcome grid, and discussion of an operational career education program. (Five other career education teacher workshops covering career education concepts and practices, linking agents, program design, program improvement, and school improvement processes are available separately through ERIC--see note).
