Malever, Michael; Matyas, George, Jr.
The bibliography developed by Project PRICE (Programming Retarded in Career Education) lists approximately 150 instructional materials and 50 publications regarding career education for educable mentally retarded students. Materials are arranged according to each of 22 competencies identified by Project Price in the areas of daily living skills (such as managing family finances and utilizing recreation and leisure time), personal-social skills (including obtaining a positive self concept and achieving independent functioning), and occupational guidance and preparation (such as selecting and planning appropriate occupational choices and developing the necessary manual skills and physical tolerances required in the competitive labor market). Listings usually provide age level designation, cost, name of publisher or supplier and a brief annotation which includes suggested uses, populations, and reading or grade level. The section on publications contains annotated citations for general career education, career education for handicapped persons and educable retarded persons, relevant journals, retrieval sources and career exploration and work sample packages.
