Pre-Industrial Preparation Program Handbook. Vocational-Technical Education.
Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu. Office of Instructional Services.
Developed in a workshop by principals, counselors, and teachers, this handbook is designed to serve as a guide for program implementation and to present an orientation to the pre-industrial preparation program. The primary goal of the program is to help academically deprived students improve their basic verbal, scientific, and mathematical skills by correlating the specific occupational experiences to these academic skills. Three new subprograms are offered to students: (1) to take employment at entry-level jobs on graduation, (2) to move toward occupational specialization at community colleges, trade and technical schools, or in apprenticeships, and (3) to continue on into preparation for professions. Sample occupational units of instruction are included in the areas of: (1) Business, (2) Personal/Public Service, (3) Food Service, (4) Construction/Civil Technology, (5) Electrical/Electronics, (6) Mechanical, and (7) Graphic Arts. Lists of standard tools and equipment, sample plans for implementation, task analysis information, a program evaluation instrument, courses of study, and a behavior description scale are appended.
