Career Doors. Final Report.
Fort Wayne Women's Bureau, Inc., IN.
Career Doors was a developmental project designed to develop motivational instructional materials that introduce and reinforce the connection between educational and employment decisions made by undereducated adults and to produce a variety of audio visual materials for use in existing Indiana adult education programs. Since the project was intended to present role models, actual adult learners were recruited from local learners to participate in two color filmstrips with accompanying audio tape cassettes (entitled "Reentry Women" and "Reentry Men") that dealt with participants' personal job search and employment experiences. Also developed was a teacher's guide for use in reinforcing the message of career doors with student viewers. First, the film "Reentry Women" was made and field tested at eight sites with 47 adult education students and 28 instructors. Because the comments concerning the film were extremely positive, the same basic format in storyline was applied to "Reentry Men." Based on the reactions of students and staff who viewed the filmstrips, the project was deemed successful. (Appendixes include job descriptions of project staff and the interview administered to filmstrip participants.) (MN)
