A Descriptive Overview of the Cluster-Based Occupational Curriculum Development Model (CBOCDM).
Phelps, L. Allen
Career education concepts are all closely linked to the occupational cluster, which has become the basic element in career education curriculum development and programing. Procedures for preparing a cluster-based occupational curriculum are presented, including the collection of manpower data and occupational selection. Other components of the model include: (1) describing selected occupations and clustering these occupations by commonality of job tasks, (2) analyzing the instructional components of each instructional task to provide the teacher with a "task module" for teaching each identified skill, (3) skill transferability, which is demonstrated by cluster commonality analysis with career ladder sequencing of tasks, (4) pre-assessment of students, (5) individualized instruction, and (6) multimedia instructional materials.
