Electrical Occupations Cluster Guide. Develop and Implement Model Electrical Cluster Program.
Portland Public Schools, OR.
This curriculum guide deals with electrical occupations clusters. The first section of the guide introduces vocational and career education in general, and electrical occupational education in particular; provides definitions of commonly used terms; and lists guidelines for establishing acceptable secondary vocational programs in Oregon. In the next section, a small but representative sample of electrical occupations is analyzed in terms of the labor market trends and common skill requirements, from the student's point of view as well as from the teacher's. Also addressed are goal-based planning and the objectives of occupational clusters, the need for individualized instruction, suggestions for an electrical occupations cluster curriculum, guidelines for establishing a high school cluster program, and ideas for core and elective courses. The fourth section offers program goals, course goals, and learning activities for nine phases of the career education process: safety; technical communications; mathematical calculations; tools and equipment; tests and measurements; assembly, maintenance, and repair; electrical and electronic theory; human relations; and careers. Concluding the guide are a discussion of the need for assessment and suggestions for a number of assessment activities. Appendixes to the guide include a certificate of competency, a job descriptions form, and a brief list of resources. (MN)
