Health Occupations Education In Wisconsin's Secondary Schools: A Curriculum Guide. Bulletin No. 7352.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
This document contains teaching guides for the two courses included in Wisconsin's Health Occupations Education Curriculum, which is designed to help students become informed consumers of health care services and to determine individual suitability for pursuing vocational commitment in the health services field. This curriculum is also designed to help prepare the students for entry into postsecondary education and training programs in health-related occupations and/or entry level employment in the health industry. The first course is a survey course which focuses on the identification of health career needs, health delivery systems, and health occupations. The second course is called the "capstone course" and provides for the acquisition of job-entry level skills in a health occupation at less than the level of licensure. The capstone course can be taught by simulated classroom instruction or by the cooperative education method, using community health care agencies. The format utilized by each course includes the following elements: goals, objectives, teacher preparation instructions, suggested student learning experiences, evaluation activities, references to prerequisite or advanced units, and resources. A large portion of this document contains appended materials, including suggested procedures for initiating and developing a vocational program, requirements of a cooperative vocational education program, and related forms.
