Proceedings of Project PRICE Trainer's Workshop: Working Paper No. 5.
Brolin, Donn E., Ed.
Presented are nine papers delivered at the 1975 Trainer's workshop of Project PRICE (Programming Retarded in Career Education). It is explained that Project PRICE is designed to develop an inservice model for training regular and special educators to provide effective career education to educable retarded students from kindergarten through grade 12. Discussed in Part I by N. Gysbers is the need to view career education from a life-centered rather than work-centered approach. C. Kohaska details such career education considerations as mainstreaming, normalization and the economic situation. A framework of the major systems and methods for implementing values education are provided by E. Moore. Part II contains descriptions of methods for teaching the following career education competencies: daily living skills (by C. Earhart), personal social skills (by C. Magnuson), and occupational abilities (by J. Alexander). The development of the competency to utilize recreation and leisure time is addressed in Part III by G. Hitzhusen, L. Johnson, P. Verhoven and J. Goldstein. (CL)
