Business and Office Career Education Curriculum Project. Final Report.
Colorado State Univ., Ft. Collins. Dept. of Vocational Education.
The document reports on the procedures followed and the major meetings and events in a 24 month U.S. Office of Education project carried out by Colorado State University to develop business and office career education curriculum guides for grades seven-nine. The materials developed were: (1) student learning packets or modules, (2) correlated teachers' manuals, (3) a K-14 curriculum plan and strategy, and (4) a resource list of publishers. (These materials are discussed, but not included, in the document.) A national advisory committee was set up, and directors of career education curriculum projects across the nation helped to establish guidelines for articulation and coordination among projects. Materials and information were solicited from career education projects throughout the United States, from State supervisors of business and office and career education, and from business education supervisors of large cities. The National Symposium for Business and Office Education Curriculum Guidelines was held in Denver in 1973 to inform leaders of the project and to develop and disseminate curriculum guidelines. Cooperating teachers participated in workshops, tested materials (titled resource guides) in their classrooms, and contributed to their revision. In July, 1975, a meeting was held in Denver to disseminate the materials nationally. (AJ)
