Career Education Individualized Reading Program. Revised Edition.
A junior high level individualized instruction program designed to assist students in developing their reading skills through materials which also build career awareness is presented. Program materials are adaptable to other formats such as mini-courses or supplemental units within existing courses. Because reading levels of materials used range from grades 2 through 14 and interest level encompasses grades 5 through adult level, the program can also be modified for upper elementary and high school use. Program information is contained in four sections. A skills chart demonstrates the coordination of reading skills with career objectives. Reproductions of the 7th and 8th grade master student contracts detail the lessons assigned to the student, the possible points per lesson, and the skills measured. The bulk of the guide consists of a career materials section which briefly describes each of the approximately 50 resources used in the program. In addition to materials description, the recommended reading level, student activities, possible adaptations, and publisher information are provided. A final section lists career awareness objectives and outlines a key to match these objectives with resource materials listed earlier. (LP)
