The General Woodworking Core Curriculum. Project ABLE: Development and Evaluation of an Experimental Curriculum for the New Quincy (Mass.) Vocational-Technical School.
Leporini, Frank E.; And Others
This report describes the development of the Project ABLE General Woodworking Core Curriculum and is intended as an administrator's and instructor's manual for those schools field testing the instructional system. In the developmental process, analysis of a large number of occupations related to the woodworking family identified clusters or sub-families which were then analyzed for common skills and knowledges. Job descriptions and task enumeration were followed by task descriptions and analyses, and behaviorally stated performance objectives, derived from task and analyses, were translated into criterion tests called performance evaluation sets. To meet a major project objective of individualized instruction, learner activity guides which include student-instructor options for selecting media and methods of instruction to meet individual needs, were developed and are appended. Additional documentation of other developmental efforts are also appended. For use in field testing, this report must be supported by descriptions and documents provided in the Project ABLE Fifteenth Technical Report, available as ED 042 920. (Author/SB)
