Career Planning System. Microcomputer Version. Student Guide.
Neuman, Delia; Long, James P.
This student guide is part of the microcomputer version of the Career Planning System (CPS). CPS is a comprehensive instructional package designed to provide individualized career exploration and career planning experiences for students of approximately middle-school age. This version is designed to take advantage of the motivational, managerial, and interactive capabilities of the Atari 800 microcomputer to provide individualized career exploration and career-planning experiences for students with mild learning handicaps. Students with mild mental retardation, learning disabilities, and behavior handicaps reading at the 3.5 grade level will profit from working with this instructional package. Section 1 introduces the student to the CPS. Section 2 provides worksheets for practice in working with the concepts and vocabulary essential to the CPS. Section 3 is a form to record the student's Interest Areas. In section 4 are reaction forms upon which the student records reactions to Activities and Briefs. Section 5 provides places to record career plans for 10 occupations (courses to take now, activities to do now, and things to do after high school). Section 6 contains a reaction form summary to list jobs that interest the student most. In the final section are forms to provide the basis for discussions with the teacher and/or counselor to prepare a personal education plan. (YLB)
