A Process evaluation of Success Nova Scotia 2000 : final report by Canada( )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents findings of a process evaluation of the Nova Scotia Links component of Success Nova Scotia 2000, a federal/provincial initiative designed to bridge the gap between educational experience and the world of work for up to 3,000 post-secondary students. The evaluation was conducted after Nova Scotia Links had completed two work terms and its first year of operation. The evaluation examined three major issues: program need and focus, related to student and employer client eligibility; the function and role of advisors within the organizational structure, and providing community input to placement decisions; and developing inclusionary strategies for minority groups. Secondary issues included the impact of the program's wage subsidy, potential overlap and duplication of other programs, and program marketing. Results presented are first-level outcomes and preliminary impacts based on activity to date. Recommendations are made to improve program implementation and facilitate impact evaluation

Drawing the line : a resource for the prevention of problem gambling by Nova Scotia( Book )

9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These two volumes form an educational resource for the prevention of problem gambling. The first volume is designed for Nova Scotia students in grades 7 to 9 and contains lessons that give a broad overview of gambling, beginning with risk-taking in everyday life and ending with a detailed look at the progressive stages of problem gambling. Five lesson plans are included for each grade, along with support material and overhead transparencies for use in the classroom. The primary focus for grade 7 is self-awareness and decision-making, for grade 8 consumer awareness and decision-making, and for grade 9 substance abuse prevention. Volume 2 is designed for senior high students and comprises supplements for career & life management, mathematics, and economics courses. The first supplement considers how gambling becomes a problem and then examines gambling within the larger context of addictions. In the math supplement, students calculate odds of winning for various commercial gambling games, go through various probability exercises, and examine irrational thinking that denies or ignores real odds against winning. The economics supplement approaches gambling as a case study, and analyzes the gambling trend in Nova Scotia in terms of historical factors, social forces, and the role of government. It compares costs and benefits to assess the social & economic impact of gambling, and critically examines current issues and predicts possible future trends
