A Massachusetts Guide: Promising Practices in Career Education.
Thayer, May M., Ed.; Chase, Elizabeth C. R., Ed.
This guide provides descriptions of 33 promising practices in career education in Massachusetts, which represent a cross-section of geographical locations, student populations, and program components. It is designed for use by school administrators, guidance personnel, teachers, and community members who are looking for suggestions on how to implement, revise, or augment career education programs in their schools. The programs described provide for curriculum infusion, staff development, community collaboration, career guidance, resource centers, and services to special populations. The guide is divided into four sections including an introduction. Section 2 covers the specific program descriptions which are subdivided by these grade levels: comprehensive (K-12), elementary, middle-junior high, high school, and combined junior-senior high. Each description contains this information: objectives, program emphasis, description of activities, planning procedures, staffing, training, advice and suggestions from project directors, materials (when available), and contact person. Section 3, on planning and implementing career education programs, is a brief summary of suggestions and advice solicited from program directors. Part 4, the geographical index, is a guide to locating programs within specific geographical areas. (YLB)
