A Massachusetts Career Education Staff Development Research Guide.
Chase, Elizabeth C. R., Ed.; McLain, Thomas W., Ed.
Designed as a resource manual for use in conjunction with state and/or local level career education staff development training sessions, this handbook also provides local practitioners with information to develop new or improved career education programs. Chapter 1 overviews the concept, rationale, goals, and objectives of career education in Massachusetts. The next six chapters cover topics chosen on the basis of results of a needs assessment. Each chapter includes an introduction, examples of successful implementation strategies, and sources for reference materials and may be used separately from the others. Topic areas (with other information discussed) are career education program planning and implementation (career education as an educational change process), getting staff involved and designing inservice training programs (promoting career education, developing support groups, models for inservice training), curriculum infusion, community resource utilization (developing a resource directory, in-house teaching strategies, community-based teaching strategies), career education and special needs students (mainstreaming, teacher collaboration, Individual Education Plans), and evaluating career education programs (examples of evaluation instruments, techniques, and procedures). A list of career development concepts is appended. (YLB)
