Project CAST Resource Person Handbook.
Charles County Board of Education, La Plata, MD. Office of Special Education.
The booklet, part of a series on Project CAST (Community and School Together), a community-based career education program for special education secondary students, presents information for community resource persons. The resource person's role is explained, and his/her activities in four phases of the project are delineated: career awareness (hosting a field trip); career exploration (providing a 1-day "shadowing" experience and visiting project classes as a guest speaker); career investigation (providing opportunities for the student to observe job tasks , perform them with assistance, and perform them independently); and on-the-job training and work study. Suggestions given for resource persons involved with students in the first two phases touch upon possible field trip and guest speaker topics, general information about project students, and possible information for students during shadowing experiences. The booklet concludes with sample evaluation forms to be completed for each stage. (CL)
