A Guide to Understanding the Educational Excellence through Career-Vocational Education Project. Impact Programs.
California Univ., Davis. Dept. of Applied Behavioral Sciences.
This booklet was developed to accompany the videotape that summarizes the results of the project, "Educational Excellence through Career-Vocational Education." The 3-year project generated development of a comprehensive guidance plan, initiated curriculum review, involved counselors with teachers and curriculum, provided a means for closer working relations between vocational and nonvocational teachers, and raised school staff awareness of career and vocational education. Academic achievement levels and student attendance increased, and the dropout rate decreased. The guide contains specific background information, project outcomes, and observations about changing a school's philosophy and environment. Also included in appendices are the 42 objectives of the project and a list of resources that describe how the project schools incorporated the objectives into their sites. The guide lists 18 references and 7 resources. (KC)
