Williams, Michael J.
Long Lane School is a coeducational, residential treatment facility for juvenile delinquents in Middletown, Connecticut. The Proposed Occupational Exploration Program described in this document is intended to provide the dual function of career exploration for the approximately 425 residents of Long Lane and a means for integrating the academic and career instruction that takes place at this treatment facility. The proposed program is described and general recommendations are made for establishing a working program. The major portion of the document consists of basic skill checklists for each of the following vocational exploration areas: boiler attendant, building custodian, business and office, carpentry, electrical, food service, greenhouse, grounds maintenance, home mechanics, painting, and plumbing. For each of these vocational areas, the following is included: vocabulary terms, a listing of common tools, and a description of ways in which a student's occupational exploration activities can be extended into the areas of mathematics, language arts, social studies, and science. Each area concludes with a listing of some careers associated with the area. The document concludes with copies of record forms for the occupational exploration program and references used in developing the document. (Author/KC)
