Tech Prep Intergenerational Curriculum Development Project. Final Report.
Texas Tech Univ., Lubbock.
A project to develop a competency-based curriculum to support implementation of tech prep intergenerational programs throughout Texas was begun in summer 1992. A preliminary career ladder for intergenerational occupations was composed and revised. A task analysis was conducted. A survey to which 285 of the 547 health care professionals, secondary and postsecondary educators, and professionals in related fields receiving questionnaires responded was used to identify competencies common to the intergenerational cluster and specific to occupations therein. The identified competencies were formulated into an intergenerational program matrix that was later used to identify 106 competencies for the secondary-level course of study. Further identification of competencies and content for the postsecondary level of the program was left for the subsequent project year. The possibilities for articulation between the broad-based intergenerational tech prep program area and that of previously developed tech prep programs with narrower occupational foci were analyzed, and curriculum materials for the new program were developed. Work to establish a vehicle for communications between consortia throughout Texas that are currently implementing or planning tech prep intergenerational programs was also begun. (MN)
