Review and Analysis of Curricula For Occupations in Construction.
Lewis, Wiley B.
Emphasis on national goals such as those related to urban development, housing, and transportation will create a need for new construction and a demand for workers in the structural, mechanical, and finishing occupations. This projected increase in demand for construction workers has resulted in a need to synthesize information related to the training of those skilled workers with special emphasis directed toward curricula for emerging occupations. To assist practitioners in identifying current curriculum offerings, useful materials for improving operating programs, and voids in the present research framework, a review and analysis were made of the literature related to construction occupations. In his analysis of the literature the author examines (1) The Need for Educational Programs, (2) Curriculum Materials, (3) Curriculum Development, and (4) Methodology for Curriculum Development. Attention is directed to the educational planning system for curriculum development and the need for a complete communications system for those affected by the educational program. (JS)
