Summary

This document contains an overview of the Far West Laboratory (FWL) model for Experience-Based Career Education (EBCE). (Descriptions of two other EBCE models are included in ERIC documents CE 018 446 and CE 018 449.) Divided into seven sections, this document highlights some of the important features of the model and includes excerpts of student-oriented activities. Section 1 describes the FWL model by explaining the following elements: basic approach; program components; learning plan development; career planning; community resources; certification of learning; group experiences; staff roles; program requirements; and adaptions of the model. Section 2 presents the core program goals organized into three broad categories: career development, basic skills, and life skills. Section 3 contains the "Student Program Walk-Through," which illustrates the type of education experiences provided for the individual student. Section 4 describes the "Career Orientation Guide," which helps the students become acquainted with resource persons and their organizations. Student projects, a primary outcome of the FWL/EBCE program, are explained in section 5. Guidelines for preparing the student project plan are presented in section 6 along with suggested project ideas. Finally, section 7 contains sample student forms which are used in entry assessment, program planning, progress monitoring, and credit assignment. (BM)
