Summary

Project CAREER is a federally funded program to develop computerized behavioral objectives which will have relevance for career education in the 15 Office of Education occupational clusters for a multi-faceted approach in teaching marketable skills. The computerized data bank will be made available to all Massachusetts school systems. One element of this project is Project CAREER/Handicapped, which is assembling data based on the six major groups identified as handicapped: mentally retarded, blind, emotionally disturbed, hearing impaired, physically impaired, and speech impaired. In examining the approximately 17,000 behavioral objectives validated by Project CAREER, Project CAREER/Handicapped ascertained that every skill could be taught to handicapped students. Use of the data bank is illustrated by the behavioral objective and lesson plan for a particular skill, that of changing oil and oil filter, which represents the occupational cluster identified as transportation and the occupational area demonstrated as automotive, with the occupation using the skill as service station attendant. When handicapped students are regarded as productive persons capable of learning and applying marketable skills, rather than as individual with special needs, the label or grouping of "handicapped" loses its significance and should be eliminated from the educational system. A related document is available as ED 070 824. (MF)
