The Development of a Model, Strategies and Procedures for Introducing Change Skills Instruction into Vocational Programs.
Daniels, M. Harry; And Others
A project was conducted to develop a model, strategies, and procedures for introducing change skills instruction into vocational programs. During the course of the year-long project, the following were to be accomplished: development and presentation of a conceptual model that provided a rationale for introducing change skills instruction into vocational programs; identification, organization, and introduction of strategies for teaching change skills; identification of procedures for teaching change skills in vocational programs; production of a technical and final research report; and production of a report for the National Center for Research in Vocational Eduication that was to synthesize the strategies and procedures for teaching change skills in vocational programs. Deliverable products of the project include three quarterly reports, a final report entitled "Strategies and Procedures for Introducing Change Skills Instruction into Vocational Programs," a technical report entitled "Adapting to Technological Change," and an article entitled "Basic Skills for Work and Living: A Model for Self-Empowerment." The appendix contains two studies: "Tentative Framework for Incorporating Problem Solving into Vocational Curricula," by Joseph S. Karmos, et al. and "Business' Perspective of Basic Skills," by Denis A. Junge, et al. (Two-thirds of this report contains tentative frameworks for transition skills training in vocational curricula and for incorporating problem solving into vocational curricula.) (MN)
