Summary

In developing a program to assist the individual student to plan a goal-oriented program and increase his opportunities both to select courses moving him toward his personal goals and to use the community resources as supplemental educational experiences, the Winston Churchill High School designed a Career Cluster Curriculum Project, the first phase of which ran from July 1, 1972, to June 30, 1973. During that pilot year, it was decided to assess the present curriculum, to strengthen the career counseling component of the school program, to develop two illustrative mini-courses, and to add in-school programs and/or develop out-of-school placements enabling students to explore career interests in functional settings. The student interns, a sampling of their parents and employers and career advisors were asked for their attitudes toward the program at its conclusion. It was concluded that the responses were sufficiently encouraging to continue with the second phase of the program: expansion of mini-courses offered and internship placements. The third phase, planned for 1974-75, draws to completion various aspects of the program. (Among the seven appendixes, two are course outlines for the illustrative mini-courses.) (AG)
