A Prescriptive Catalog of Instructional Materials Recommended for Use in the Job Survival Skills Program of the California Youth Authority.
Stewart, Ellen A.; Colby, Pamela G.
A project was conducted to collect, summarize, and evaluate instructional materials for use in the job survival skills program of the California Youth Authority. The materials sought were those which focused on any or all of eight general skill categories within the scope of job survival (e.g., seeking a job, maintaining a job). Two methods of searching for and collecting materials were used: (1) identification and contact of 180 commercial publishers of career education materials, and (2) a nomination form, which is sent to state agencies responsible for processing and rehabilitation of youth offenders, asking for the nominations of job survival programs, methods, and materials. The materials received were reviewed by the use of a criterion checklist. (Included in the document is a list of all materials submitted for review and evaluation and the annotations of recommended materials scoring fifty-five points or more on the checklist. The criterion checklist is contained in the appendices). (JH)
