Guidelines for Organizing a Vocational Fair.
Lonas, Barbara
This guide presents a description of a vocational fair and suggestions for organizing and operating it with students. Schedules, materials used, and organizational strategies are included. Part I provides the rationale for and benefits of a vocational fair. Part II focuses on organizing the fair. It covers organizing a plan (grade level of students, dates, transportation of students from other schools) and making vocational staff aware of the fair's significance. A timeline is provided. Part III addresses developing the program, including designing fair layout, designing displays, determining information to be conveyed, scheduling students, and providing a culminating activity. Part IV discusses supplementary activities: orientation, open house, best display contest, and publicity. Part V suggests two evaluations--immediate responses from teachers and students and survey of students enrolled in vocational courses during the next school year to determine influences. Appendixes include a vocational orientation plan, guidelines for vocational displays, sample vocational course selection forms, vocational survey, and Project INFOE (Information Needed For Occupational Entry) material for displays.
