Prevocational Basic Skills Module. Vocational Behavior Objectives: A Guide for Individualizing Instruction.
Westinghouse Learning Corp., New York, NY.
The curriculum guide deals with prevocational basic skills at the secondary level of vocational education and industrial arts. It addresses the subject in behavioral terms, as prominent components of the career education concept. The objectives presented are designed to be compatible with individualized systems and/or application to small and large group use. Terminal and transitional objectives are presented, the transitional objectives are designed to break the major task into subtasks at four specific competency levels: (1) entry level, only cursory knowledge of the task, (2) successful performance with direct supervision, (3) successful performance with routine supervision, and (4) independent performance at the journeyman level. Concepts treated in the prevocational basic skills module include: (1) prevocational exploration objectives to provide a group of terminal topics for consideration by students not previously enrolled in career awareness programs, and (2) basic skills designed to support the established vocational objectives in automotive, building trades, and mental trades. Test items for each competency level are provided and evaluative criteria suggested. A seven-page bibliography is appended. (MW)
