Demonstrating Innovations in Vocational Education: Initial Application Submitted to the Office of Education, Department of Health, Education and Welfare: Plan and Operation Grant.
EHOVE Board of Education, Milan, OH.
The purpose of this proposed project is to demonstrate innovations in a joint vocational school which would serve public and non-public schools in Erie, Huron, and the eastern portion of Ottawa counties. The objectives of the proposed activities were to (1) emphasize a correlated curriculum developed around the "world of work" between guidance, academic, and vocational areas, (2) strengthen the instructional program by systematizing, retrieving, and applying innovations, (3) present a guidance program in occupational opportunities, and (4) provide working models of the innovations for use by others. Emphasis is on the correlated curriculum and development of filmstrip loops, programed instruction, closed circuit television, team teaching, small group activities, large group activities, individualization laboratory, and a mobile counseling unit. The correlated curriculum would be developed around the basic problems of life, and students, counselors, teachers, supervisors, consultants, and business representatives would be involved in identification of life problems. The proposal includes detailed plans for the project. (JM)
