A Comprehensive Careers Cluster Curriculum Model. Health Occupations Cluster Curriculum Project and Health-Care Aide Curriculum Project.
Bortz, Richard F.
To prepare learning materials for health careers programs at the secondary level, the developmental phase of two curriculum projects--the Health Occupations Cluster Curriculum Project and Health-Care Aide Curriculum Project--utilized a model which incorporated a key factor analysis technique. Entitled "A Comprehensive Careers Cluster Curriculum Model," five career cluster axes, five developmental career component models, and two auxiliary modules were proposed. The career cluster axes included: (1) applied biological and agricultural careers, (2) business, marketing, and management careers, (3) health careers, (4) industrial-oriented careers, and (5) personal and public service careers. The developmental modules included: (1) elementary school-based, (2) secondary school-based, (3) secondary school and community-based, (4) community-based, and (5) occupational entry. This fifth module contains three options: (1) extended self-actualization, (2) long-range occupational employment, and (3) immediate occupational employment. Career guidance and related academic subject matter modes constitute two additional modules. After a literature review, the project staff wrote parameters and listed developmental tasks. Course content will be developed for each module of the total curriculum model. (AG)
