Project CAREER/Career Development Process for the Handicapped. Interim Report (July 1, 1972-November 15, 1972).
Massachusetts State Dept. of Education, Boston. Div. of Occupational Education.
This interim report covers the first phase of Project CAREER, which is a federally funded exemplary project in vocational education focusing on the career development process for the handicapped. An interdisciplinary career education team for each of three local education agencies (LEA's) was established, composed of a special education teacher, a vocational teacher, and an academic teacher. Coordinated by an occupational resource specialist in each LEA, the team's orientation was accomplished at a 1-week summer conference and 4-week workshops in each LEA. Preliminary planning was done for developing a career education resource center and integrated career education curriculums for handicapped students. Behavioral objectives and performance objectives are being developed and examined, a pilot demonstration unit will be presented in October 1972, and community support is being enlisted. Short courses for in-service training and pre-service college courses have been developed. A program evaluation by a third party evaluator, conclusions, recommendations, and a wide range of resource materials are provided. (Illustrations deleted due to marginal legibility.) (AG)
