Project S.P.I.C.E.: Special Partnership in Career Education. Final Report.
Emerson, Debby H.; And Others
The final report discusses Project SPICE (Special Partnership in Career Education) which produced a career awareness curriculum consisting of an implementation guide, and six teaching modules intended for use with educable mentally handicapped students (ages 11-to-13 years). Noted are the following program objectives (based on the National Standard Career Education Model): self awareness, career/education awareness, decision-making/beginning competency, economic awareness, employability skills, and rights and responsibilities. Suggestions are given for establishing peer tutoring, soliciting community career consultants, involving parents, incorporating career education into on-going activities and classes and gaining school/community support. An evaluation of the project is described in which two groups (one test, the other control) both containing both EMH (32 Ss) and non-handicapped (56 Ss) students were given pre and post tests to measure the objectives. Among findings reported is that the test group had a better understanding of occupational choice, valuing, personal finance, knowledge of occupational titles, and knowledge about a career. Changes and problems in the project and dissemination are outlined. Copies of Project SPICE newsletters and a newspaper article are appended. (PHR)
