A Development Program Utilizing Simulated Occupational Experience in Distributive Education.
Riley, Clayton; Omvig, Clayton
The developmental programs were initiated to assist in: developing a procedure for training high school students in distributive education utilizing simulated occupational experience; developing specifications for a simulated laboratory for providing occupational experience; developing a curriculum utilizing laboratory training for eleventh and twelfth grade students; determining the facilities and equipment needed; developing, testing, evaluating, and refining instructional materials; evaluating the effect of the program on adoption of distributive education programs in cooperating schools; and evaluating the effectiveness of such experiences in securing and maintaining employment in distributive occupations. The study group was composed of 128 students in four selected public area vocational-technical schools in Kentucky. The program was effective and demonstrated that simulation can be used effectively. A Coordinator's Handbook, one of the materials resulting from the program, is included and constitutes the major portion of the document. It covers the duties and responsibilities of coordinators. Examples of teaching aids, a curriculum survey, and monthly report forms are also included. (AG)
