Study of Work Project. Final Report, 1982-83.
Paterson Board of Education, NJ.
The Study of Work Project implemented an experience-based prevocational career education program with 785 students from Eastside High School in Paterson, New Jersey. The emphasis of this approach was on developing connections between skill acquisitions in the classroom and skill application in occupational settings. The grant funded a community resource person who trained 33 teachers (1) to infuse work as a topic of study into course content; (2) to develop and implement classroom-based experiential learning activities, and (3) to implement community-based experiential learning about work roles. Evaluation results support the successful implementation of project objectives. Project ideas were to be continued and expanded to all teachers at Eastside High School during the 1983-84 school year.
