The curriculum guide for Special Education is based on the Career Conscious Individual Career Education Model, designed to create career consciousness in students in all educational levels; to help them develop necessary life competencies, attitudes, and values; to assist them in visualizing possible careers; and to analyze and relate these roles to their present situations. Not restricted to specific subject areas, the lessons center on the model's four interrelated domains: self-knowledge and interpersonal skills, knowledge of work and leisure worlds, career planning knowledge and skills, and basic studies and occupational preparation. Objectives are designed especially for special education on the primary, intermediate, and secondary levels. Each lesson is directed toward one of the three levels. They involve: distinguishing ethnic and socioeconomic groups through art projects; identification of self and of individual differences; assessment of personal characteristics; self-analysis; social behavior through role playing; examination of dignity, respect, potential, and cooperation; awareness of basic social skills, interpersonal relations, and basic communications and mathematics skills; understanding of job training, educational preparation, and occupational classification; and career interests, decision-making, community resources, and knowledge of environment. The main portion of the document (85 pages) presents activities and outcomes organized under domain, pertinent goal, and specific objective. (JB)
