Teacher Training Program for Distributive Education. Final Report.
Houston Univ., TX. Dept. of Business Technology.
The purpose of this 3-month research project was to develop, evaluate, and implement a distributive education program of instruction leading to a Bachelor of Science in Technology degree at the University of Houston. Intended for use also as a statewide model, this interdisciplinary curriculum utilized extensively in its development research studies by a teacher educator from Virginia, Professor Lucy C. Crawford. Teacher competencies were identified, as well as a set of concepts and generalizations for various subjects in distributive education. Tentative program approval was given early in 1972 by the Texas Education Agency, permitting the university to offer two summer courses for teacher certification in distributive education. A model classroom-laboratory was designed, and an evaluation by consultants was carried out. Detailed curriculum descriptions are provided. (AG)
