The curriculum guide provides teaching units and activities to integrate career education concepts into the curriculum for primary and intermediate educable mentally handicapped children. Focused on are 16 concepts of career development such as the interrelationship of education and work and individual responsibility for career planning. In addition, 12 persisting life situations such as learning to communicate ideas and learning to earn a living are cross referenced with the 16 career development concepts. Career concepts and life situations are coordinated in chart form with behavioral objectives, topic learning activities (organized by subject areas such as social studies or art), resources (such as records, books, or filmstrips), learning outcomes, and suggested evaluation procedures. Examples of learning activities at the primary level for the concept of understanding and accepting self are maintaining a daily health chart (health) and setting up a grocery store in class (social studies). Evaluation procedures given for the self understanding concept include labeling basic parts of the skeleton and exhibiting understanding of the function of major body organs.
