A Project to Develop Career Awareness Materials for Special Needs Students. Final Report. Research Series No. 19.
Rustan, Jack; And Others
The report briefly describes a project to develop career orientation materials for special needs students--disadvantaged and educable mentally handicapped (EMH)--at the junior and senior high school levels in North Dakota. The activities involved in selecting the career areas are briefly discussed. By polling various students in different parts of the State, 10 vocational areas were selected: (1) Service Station Attendant, (2) Janitorial Services, (3) Food Service Worker, (4) Laundry Worker, (5) Farm Worker, (6) Auto Body Repairman, (7) Nurse's Aide or Orderly, (8) Food Store Worker, (9) Construction Worker, and (10) City Worker. The report also includes a brief description of the format of the materials. Developed in booklets and accompanied by 35mm slides and cassette tape, the materials are written in a language that most EMH students can read; the type is large and the sentences short. Appended to the report is the form used to identify educational needs of the special students. Also appended is a package and cost description for each of the developed units. (NJ)
