Picago, Stanley T.; And Others
The curriculum guide provides teaching units and activities to integrate career education concepts into the curriculum for educable mentally handicapped children in grades 7 through 12. Focused on are 16 concepts of career development such as the interrelationship between occupations and life style and between education and work. In addition, 12 persisting life situations such as learning to travel and move about and learning to manage one's money are cross referenced with the 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 junior high level for the concept of the interrelationship of education and work are listing skills which require training (social studies) and learning to use the telephone properly (language arts). The senior high curriculum is organized by subject areas (such as pre-vocational information, job adjustment, or language arts) and grade level. Appended is supplementary information for students such as self rating forms, and a list of ways to develop an attractive personality. (For a related curriculum guide at the elementary level see EC 052 548). (DB)
