Project PISCES: Career Education Curriculum and Work Experience for Secondary Emotionally Disturbed/Learning Disabled Students.
Simek, Thomas S.; And Others
Project PISCES (a Pilot Infusion System for Career Experiential Studies) combines curriculum and work experience components to meet the vocational education needs of emotionally disturbed and learning disabled students in Montgomery County (Pennsylvania) Unit No. 23. Core elements of Project PISCES include a curriculum which focuses on self awareness, career awareness, decision making, education awareness, vocational skill identification, and employability skills; a community resource guide; inservice training for special and regular education teachers, administrators, parents, and employers; and a monitored supportive career-oriented work study program. A fundamental criterion for placement in the program is that vocational school enrollment is not a viable alternative for the student. The work experience component of the project stresses communication between employer, teacher, project director, field director, interdisciplinary team, and parents. (SBH)
