Career Education Competency Checklist for the Learning Handicapped.
This checklist is intended for use by teachers in identifying student competency levels as they pertain to the developmental process of career education while identifying special areas requiring additional teaching concentration. It can direct teachers in infusion of career education concepts into their developed classroom curriculum or aid in planning and implementing the career education component of the student's Individualized Education Plan. The 10 "Goal Statements for Career Education" developed by the California State Department of Education serve as the distribution basis for the specific career education competencies included in the checklist. These 10 goal statements are categorized and assigned to one of the four basic developmental stages of the career education learning process: awareness (self-awareness, occupational awareness, attitude development, educational awareness, economic awareness), orientation (consumer competencies, career orientation), exploration (career planning and decision making, career exploration), and preparation (career preparation). One other category is also included--basic survival skills (basic life and survival skills). (To use the checklist, the teacher signifies which career education competencies the student is felt to have already obtained by marking the appropriate grade level column on that page of the checklist.)
