Model Curricula for Vocational and Technical Teacher Education: Report No. I. Performance Requirements for Teachers. Final Report.
Cotrell, Calvin J.; And Others
This first phase of a project initiated to develop, demonstrate, and test curricula for the preparation and inservice education of vocational and technical education teachers, was devoted to determining the performance requirements of teachers. During this phase, 237 performance elements were identified through application of occupational analysis techniques, and common, mixed, and unique pedagogical performance elements were identified by a task force representing seven vocational services. An additional 30 performance elements were identified and 147 performance elements were verified through a national critical incident study, and 226 performance-oriented general objectives were developed. The conclusions of the study indicated that most pedagogical performance requirements for teachers were common to all vocational services, and that meaningful specific objectives could not be developed without consideration for a particular institutional setting. It was recommended that core offerings be considered for a majority of the curricula to be developed and that performance-oriented general objectives be prepared as guidelines for writing specific objectives.
