Career Awareness for Deaf Education: Resource Curriculum Guide: Pre-Kindergarten-Grade 12.
South Dakota School for the Deaf, Sioux Falls.
The comprehensive career awareness curriculum guide for the deaf and the hearing-impaired is the result of a research and development project conducted at the South Dakota School for the Deaf; teachers produced and pilot-tested the materials. The pre-kindergarten through primary level guide (approximately 100 pages) consists of teacher objectives matched with lists of resources and career-related instructional activities; it provides a self-awareness and attitude-development program and a basic exposure to the world of work. Guides for intermediate-level instructional units (30 pages), to be taught independently or incorporated into the regular curriculum, provide information about the world of work and opportunities to explore various occupations, and broaden the student's awareness of his environment. Identifying personal strengths and weaknesses is emphasized, to aid in realistic career-planning. The secondary teacher's guide (60 pages) matches teacher-objectives with lists of resources and learning activities. The content is related to occupational information about 12 job clusters; the curriculum developers were careful that their selections would be the most practical for the deaf person. A guide to teaching job-seeking skills (40 pages) and a listing of established postsecondary facilities offering programs for deaf students complete the document. (AJ)
