The CI-TAB Middle School Program: Career Information and Training Activities for the Blind and Visually Handicapped.
Presented is the CI-TAB (Career Information and Training Activities for the Blind) script of 23 cassette recordings providing career education for visually handicapped and blind middle-school students. Included are eight study units titled: "What Work Is"; "Why People Work"; "How People Find Jobs"; "What People Do in Certain Jobs"; "Why Some Jobs Pay More"; "Working Conditions"; "Interests, Aptitudes, Personalities"; and "How Schools Help Prepare for Jobs". Each unit is accompanied by a list of concepts to be developed, suggested learning activities, and tests. Fourteen job descriptions give first person accounts of the experiences of visually handicapped or blind workers, including a computer programmer, an electronics technician, and a homemaker. An appendix lists additional resources for films useful for students who have enough vision to enjoy films or who may profit from hearing comments on sound film. (IM)
