Handbook for Vocational Instructors Interested in Competency-Based Education.
Burger, Laura J.; Lambrecht, Judith J.
The handbook is designed to help vocational instructors develop articulated vocational programs for secondary and post-secondary students.The handbook recommends a competency based approach which personalizes instruction for students and which emphasizes performance of job related tasks. The handbook's first chapter is a general introduction to its focus and use. Chapters 2 and 3 address the organization of the local program and the content, organization, and instructional sequence of a single occupation within the local program. They consider the first four steps of the recommended six-step procedure for curriculum articulation: listing the occupations, deciding which occupations to teach, drawing the worker mobility chart, and outlining the occupational curriculum. Chapter 4 discusses guidelines for developing instructional modules and describes the fifth step in achieving articulation: writing teaching modules. Chapter 5 suggests a system for teachers to use in monitoring student's progress through modules toward their occupational goals and covers the last articulation step: developing a record-keeping system. Five appendixes provide a glossary, a sample task inventory, guidelines for constructing task inventories, measures to determine learner achievement, and advantages and limitations of some classroom media. A three-page bibliography is included. (JR)
