Inservice Training in Career Education: Incorporating the Career Concept in Foreign Language Programs. Final Project Performance Report, July 1, 1978-September 30, 1979.
Scebold, C. Edward
During 1978-79, the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) conducted a career education project. During this year, the project staff developed several products which would be employed by workshop directors and their audiences as they attempt to demonstrate and implement the incorporation process of the career education concept into the foreign language curriculum. Additionally, the project provided for the training of a selected group of foreign language personnel in organization and implementation of ACTFL-sponsored workshops on the topic. Two products were developed for use by both workshop directors and their audiences for use in the workshops: a fifteen-minute color film, which demonstrates the rationale and implementation of the incorporation process; and a Career Education Sampler, which contains samples of theoretical and practical information for use in the projected workshops and in the actual foreign language classrooms throughout the country. An evaluation performed by Policy Studies in Education indicates that the project had met its goals generally well. This report is a detailed account of the procedures and tasks which comprised the project. Specifically, it deals with (1) organizing project committees; (2) producing the project film; (3) organizing and implementing the leadership training workshop and developing the Career Sampler; (4) evaluating the leadership training workshop; (5) continuing the leadership training; (6) publicizing the project results; and (7) managing the project budget. Appendixes of pertinent forms, letters, and products are also included. (KC)
