Career Education Materials for Educable Retarded Students; Project PRICE Working Paper No. 2.
Brown, Greg; And Others
The annotated bibliography of over 150 commercially available career education materials for educable retarded (EMR) students is the second in a series of working papers from Project PRICE (Programming Retarded in Career Education). Entries are grouped under 22 competencies considered essential for community adjustment, which fall under three primary curriculum areas: daily living skills (such as managing family finances), personal-social skills (such as communicating appropriately with others), and occupational guidance and preparation (such as exhibiting necessary work habits). For each competency, the materials have been divided into three age levels: elementary, junior high, and senior high. Provided for each entry is a brief descriptive (not evaluative) annotation (including suggested uses, populations, and estimated reading level), the cost (if available), and the publisher's name. A complete list of publishers and their addresses is included in the last section. Also listed are career education publications (grouped under general EMR and handicapped), relevant journals, and two sources of more information. An epilogue describes future Project PRICE activities and papers. (LS)
