Service Occupations Cluster Brief. [Vocational Education in Oregon.]
This guide sets forth minimum approval criteria for service occupations cluster programs in Oregon. The information in the guide is intended for use by district-level curriculum planners, teachers, regional coordinators, or state education department staff involved with new program development or revisions of existing programs. The guide outlines the instructional content of service occupations education programs in terms of program descriptions, areas for training, program goals, course/content goals, and sample performance objectives. Course titles and descriptions are also included for the four service occupational subclusters: (1) ("Education" is a one-year "cadet" program for students interested in exploring teaching as a career by working with classroom teachers; (2)"Protective" is a one-year program for students interested in a career in fire or law; (3) "Personal" deals with cosmetology or barbering; and (4) "Military" consists of a three- or four- year Junior ROTC program. A section on organizational options is designed to illustrate a few of the many ways to deliver the minimum instructional content required for an approved vocational cluster program. Content is illustrated by course titles for the instructional levels to recognize that students from different grades may enroll in one or more levels of a program. (KC)
