Drake, J. Bob; And Others
A state/federal-funded project for the development of a coordinated curriculum development and management plan was carried out in Alabama in 1977-79 and was titled VO-ED COMP (Vocational Education Curriculum Operation--Management Plan). The proposed model consisted of twelve steps: (1) identification of needs, (2) instructional material priority determination, (3) establishment of curriculum standards and policies, (4) state approval, (5) material review, (6) adaptation, development or procurement of materials, (7) pilot or field test, (8) printing or production, (9) dissemination/diffusion, (10) local utilization, (11) evaluation, and (12) recycling. An operation and management plan for administration of the model was outlined; functions of the Curriculum Development Unit (CDU) and its committees, units, and positions were delineated; staffing patterns and positions were indicated; and a pre-service/in-service professional development plan for vocational curriculum personnel was recommended. The latter plan advocated utilization of the Vocational Education Curriculum Specialist Materials developed by the American Institutes for Research, Palo Alto, California. (Author/CT)
