Guidelines for the Development of Prevocational Education Programs at the Junior High School Level.
Budke, Wesley Eugene
Starting with the premise that there is a need for continuous vocational education from early childhood throughout life, this study sought to develop guidelines for use in organizing, operating, and administering prevocational education programs at the junior high school level. The study was national in scope and made use of a questionaire to contact 29 directors of local programs of occupational orientation and exploration. After analysis of the 20 returned questionnaires, and review of the related literature, an inventory of common program areas was prepared and submitted to a jury of experts, who indicated the relative importance of each. The result of these activities was a guideline statement and accompanying guiding principles for each of the 13 identified areas, including (1) Program Objectives, (2) Program Design, (3) Grade Level of Student Involvement, (4) Program Financing, and (5) Curriculum and Activities. These guidelines are usable in the development of junior high school prevocational education programs and should be disseminated for use by concerned educators. This Ph.D. dissertation was submitted to The Ohio State University. (JS)
