Program Model in New Careers for Handicapped Children and Youth (Communication and Media Cluster).
Rice, Eric; Etheridge, Rose
The book describes a project designed to develop, pilot, and assess a prototypic career education model to prepare handicapped children and youth for new careers in communication and media-related occupations. Some methodological issues are described, along with the construction and evaluation of the program model and the development, implementation, and evaluation of the model program. Model components found to be effective are reviewed and include the coupling of a skill training aide procedure with the curriculum to double class enrollment. Among the overall findings reported are that the model can be merged with ongoing public school programs at all levels; can be implemented in a cost-effective fashion; and can have a positive impact on student, teacher, employer, and program development. Most of the document consists of appendixes, which include the program model itself, along with a needs assessment package, teacher in-service materials, parent and community materials, curricular materials for grades 1-12, a synthesis of information and translation of findings into suggested activity, and an external review package.
