Brashear High School Career Guidance Improvement Project. Final Report.
Pittsburgh Public Schools, PA.
A total of 55 teachers, 5 administrators, 8 pupil services staff members, 3 parents, and 10 student leaders responded to a career guidance improvement survey at Brashear High School (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) by grouping 12 competencies into 3 career development competencies to be included in the local standards: (1) self-knowledge; (2) educational/vocational development; and (3) career planning and exploration. The three competencies (from the National Career Development Guidelines) were used as objectives in the selection and development of classroom materials and activities for infusion of career information in the demonstration model classes. Evaluation of the acquisition of the competencies by students was based on teacher observations. Materials used to develop a positive self-concept helped students with career decisions. (A career infusion chronology and a graphic and tabular presentation of the survey results are included in this document. Also included is a sample career project in consumer math and English 4 with monthly goals for career infusion classes. A list of core materials to develop each competency appears in the appendix.)
