A Teacher's Handbook on Career Education for Students with Special Needs: Grades K-12.
Bailey, Larry J.
The handbook is designed to move teachers in the direction of developing competencies in planning, organizing, and conducting career education learning activities for students with special needs. The first chapter on special education in Illinois reviews the context in which the handbook was developed. Chapter II is devoted to the emergence of career education as a major, national educational priority. Career education and career development definitions are provided and the purpose, goals, and objectives at the primary and intermediate levels are presented in Chapter III. Discussed in Chapter IV are the characteristics of three groups (visually, hearing, and physically impaired) of children and comments on certain implications for career education. Chapter V identifies the types of available information and provides for access to resources and agencies which produce and provide career education materials and services. Chapter VI demonstrates how career education goals and objectives and career education materials can be merged in planning and developing instructional lessons and units. A final chapter discusses the role of the parent in career development and suggests ways in which the home school relationship can be enhanced. Appendixes (which make up a major part of the document) include sample unit and lesson plan forms, representative lesson plans developed by field-test teachers, and a taxonomy of commercial instructional materials for career education--grades k through 12.
