Health Occupations Education Curriculum Project. Final Report.
University of Central Arkansas, Conway.
A project entitled the Health Occupations Education Curriculum Project was undertaken to coordinate the 23 secondary cooperative health occupations education (HOE) programs in Arkansas and to develop a well-planned curriculum incorporating the multi-media approach. Included among the other objectives of the project were the following: development of a secondary HOE curriculum guide and related instructional materials, successfully conducting field tests in cooperation with a stratified random sample of Arkansas secondary HOE teachers to validate the guide, and implementation of inservice teacher education programs on the effective use of project-developed materials. Project staff designed and developed a four-semester, performance-based, secondary HOE curriculum guide for the State of Arkansas. While some units of the guide could not be tested due to time restrictions, those that were tested were successful. Recommendations were made calling for the field testing of the entire HOE curriculum for another year, for subsequent revision of the guide, and for additional inservice programs to acquaint new HOE teachers with the guide. Appended to the report are the project task survey and a field test evaluation form. (MN)
