Project S.P.I.C.E. Special Partnership in Career Education. Final Report.
Volusia County Schools, Daytona Beach, FL.
The purpose of the Special Partnership in Career Education (SPICE) project was to design a practical, replicable, transportable career exploration curriculum for junior high-aged educable mentally handicapped students. Six career education modules and a guide for integrating career education into an existing curriculum were developed. The six career education modules are (1) Self Awareness, (2) Attitudes and Appreciations, (3) Career/Educational Awareness and Exploration, (4) Decision Making/Beginning Competency, (5) Economic Awareness, and (6) Employability Skills. Students participating in the SPICE program went on site visits to work settings in the community, heard guest speakers discuss their careers, and met with the project staff in large and small groups to discuss career opportunities and requirements. Among the findings of summative and formative evaluation procedures was that the project succeeded in achieving twelve of the fifteen stated objectives. Overall, it was found that the SPICE program was more effective with the handicapped students than the non-handicapped group. (Appended material includes a list of subordinate objectives, project newsletters, and articles related to the project.) (LRA)
