This document is a suggested course of study for a secondary coordinated career education program. It is designed to meet many of the life-skill needs of special needs learners. The course of study is designed in three levels. These levels correspond to an individual's amount of knowledge attained, level of skill developed, or awareness and insight cultivated. Mastery of one level makes it possible to proceed to the next level of work in a given area. These do not correspond to a given grade or age. The learning may be repeated in as many variations as is necessary in order to assure that the level has been reached and that the student is ready to progress to the next level or the next section. Level 1 of the guide contains four sections, encompassing eighteen units. Material covered includes introduction to the coordinated career education program, personal care and responsibilities, career exploration and planning, and pre-employment readiness. Level 2's seven sections (20 units) cover the following material: personal management, pre-employment skills, effective communications, employment safety, job readiness, personal finance, and Individualized Educational Programs in specific skills. The five sections of level 3 (15 units) cover adult living, labor relations, consumer education, citizenship responsibilities, and management of leisure time. Each unit contains learning objectives and resources. (KC)
