To Develop a Curriculum Manual for the Cooperative Education Program at Los Angeles Valley College [California].
Lomen, Lynn D.
This document is Part II of the Handbook on Cooperative Education at Los Angeles Valley College (California). It was designed to enable instructor/coordinators to conduct classes more effectively and efficiently. Outlines are provided of the new and revised curriculum offerings that have been suggested by students, the Cooperative Education Advisory Committee, and a random sample of employers. Each class sets its own learning objectives for the semester; therefore, the curricula included here are representative suggestions of what can be done. Results of three surveys indicated that day students want job-entry skills and job information, while evening students want information on promotions, human relations, and job benefits. The curriculum is divided into four units, two of which are further divided into units for day and evening students, since their needs are so different. A review of audiovisual materials, a description of several role-playing situations, and a bibliography of the books on vocational education which are available in the college library are also provided.
