Goals of a project to develop a career-oriented curriculum for the Texas School for the Deaf from 1972 to 1975 included the delivery of (1) career awareness, exploration, and preparation experiences, (2) language development activities, (3) avocational-recreational experiences, (4) consumer activities, (5) problem-solving experiences, (6) technical knowledge, and (7) a realistic self-image. Chapter 1 presents a program overview and Chapter 2 consists of the evaluation--elementary evaluation, elementary interview inventory, junior high and high school evaluation, questionnaires, and teacher opinion survey. Chapter 3 describes the development and implementation of the career awareness component for the three project years. In Chapter 4 the two career exploration workshops are described and information is provided about the first year of implementation, the model city concept, and the refinement activities of the final year. Chapter 5 presents information about the summer career preparation workshop, the career education lab, and the modular learning stations. Procedures for program modification and recommendations for the elementary, junior, and high school levels are presented in Chapters 6 and 7. A final chapter discusses career education media and production of a career quiz. Monthly progress reports are appended along with definitions of terms for teacher observations of students. (NJ)
