A Model Plan for a Career Education Curriculum Laboratory. Final Report.
Koenig, John H.
To develop a model plan for a career education curriculum laboratory, a 2-phase study was conducted with phase one concentrating upon the state-of-the-art of curriculum development in Vocational Education Curriculum Laboratories and the production, nationally, of vocational instructional materials, and phase two starting with the study of the current concepts of career. Data were collected from the directors of Vocational Education Curriculum Laboratories in 17 states and from executive officers of the State Board for Vocational Education and state directors of vocational education of the 50 states, Puerto Rico, District of Columbia, and the Trust Territory. Additional information was obtained from on-site visitations to eight laboratories throughout the nation. Data and information collected during phase one were utilized in conjunction with phase two to develop a model career education curriculum laboratory. The model laboratory consists of guidelines pertaining to: (1) selection of participants who will draft administrative policies for the laboratory, (2) purposes of laboratory operations, (3) location of laboratory, (4) selection of participants who will set curriculum development priorities, (5) curriculum development components, (6) inservice teacher education, (7) laboratory staffing, (8) laboratory size, (9) laboratory equipment, and (10) operating costs.
