Levels and Similarities of Instruction in Selected Content Areas of Vocational Education.
Lee, Jasper S.
To aid in the successful interdisciplinary team planning of vocational education, this study sought to determine: (1) which of certain selected skills in agricultural, distributive, home economics, office, and trade and industrial occupations are being taught at the secondary level, and (2) the similarities in selected instructional content in the various vocational education courses in the secondary schools of Mississippi. Data pertaining to the skills taught were obtained from 278 high school vocational education teachers. Analysis of the data revealed little similarity of instruction among the vocational education areas for the skills studied. However, 15 of the skills were taught at similar levels by teachers of two, three, or four of the vocational areas. The study further notes that the small number of similarities of instruction tended to support the establishment of comprehensive vocational education programs in local attendance centers. (JS)
