"A Sense of Pride." Establishing a Foxfire Adapted Model of Experientially Based Career Education for Handicapped Youth. Final Report.
Institutional Development and Economic Affairs Service, Inc. Nederland, CO.
The progress and achievements are detailed of three sites that implemented a modified Foxfire approach (a community-based experiential learning model invloving students in community research, interviewing, writing, publishing, and marketing their own magazine). Handicapped high schoolers interviewed and photographed successful handicapped adults, and wrote articles on service providers and community resources. The model emphasizes career education concepts, basic skills attainment, and affective development. Each of the four replication sites in Colorado is described in terms of summary accomplishments, program structure (project staff, student participants, project activities, facilities), parent participation, advisory councils, administrative support, community support, and evaluation. A second section reviews dissemination activities, including collaboration with colleges to offer practica. Information on evaluation is divided into program assessment and responsive evaluation. A concluding section describes primary conditions (such as administrative support and appropriate instructional staffing) that contribute to successful implementation of the model. (CL)
