The Study of Work, Phase II. Final Report 1983-84.
Paterson Board of Education, NJ.
The Study of Work Project: Phase II refined, expanded, and institutionalized many experience-based prevocational career education practices implemented at Eastside High School, Paterson, New Jersey. To ensure continuation of these practices subsequent to cessation of grant-funded support, Phase II emphasized development of a team of teachers to deliver technical assistance and training and a colleague coaching network to deliver classroom-based assistance. The training and assistance provided to teachers was designed to help them (1) infuse career education in the ongoing curriculum, (2) deliver experience-based prevocational career education, (3) employ interactive instructional practices to increase student involvement, (4) expand use of community resource persons in the classroom, and (5) implement student visits to work sites. In addition, considerable time was directed at integrating project activities with those of ongoing school and district improvement efforts. The community-based experiential learning projects were only partially implemented, but other goals were accelerated, notably the dissemination of project practices to another Paterson School: John F. Kennedy High School. (Appendixes include an interactive teaching map, newsletter, and sample program materials and forms.) (Author/YLB)
