Training Parents in Career Education.
Lewis, Michael John; And Others
This manual on training parents in career education contains information that was obtained from a project during which staff from Teachers College of Columbia University provided formal training in career education for parents of handicapped children and youth. Following a description of the Parent Training Project in Career Education, various administrative factors that affected the viability of the project are discussed, including the network of communication, administrative style and project support, active administrative support and parent involvement, school staff and project support, parent participation, and student participation. Examined in a discussion of the parent training curriculum are the structure of parent workshops and the content of the preservice training curriculum. Various sample parent-training activities are provided, including handouts, questionnaires, group and individual activities, simulations, checklists, and worksheets. Also included in the manual are a 10-page bibliography on career education and bibliographies on parent training and values clarification. (MN)
