Phase I involved 5 weeks of entry level employment for academic teachers in selected establishments in order to acquaint them with an occupational field. They did the regular work of these positions for 6 hours each work day and then spent 2 hours interviewing other personnel to collect significant occupational information. Phase II involved 3 weeks in which academic teachers, occupational teachers, and occupational counselors modified or developed new courses in mathematics, English, Social Studies, and Science. This was done so the academic courses could support and reinforce occupational subject matter. A job analysis-subject matter area matrix was developed which allowed decisions concerning which courses should include particular competencies. Following this, subject area curriculum guides and suggested classroom activities were developed. Some of the curriculum guides are: (1) Voice Training, (2) Legible Writing, (3) Estimating, (4) Safety, (5) Quality Control, (6) Logic and Problem Solving, and (7) Career Development. Also included are the sequential procedure involved in this project, two related conference reports of "Total Community Occupational Education System, and general facility specifications. This was an Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Title III project. (EM)
