Developing and Testing Simulated Occupational Experiences for Distributive Education Students in Rural Communities: Volume III: Training Plans: Final Report.
Virginia Polytechnic Inst. and State Univ., Blacksburg.
Volume 3 of a three volume final report presents prototype job training plans developed as part of a research project which pilot tested a distributive education program for rural schools utilizing a retail store simulation plan. The plans are for 15 entry-level and 15 career-level jobs in seven categories of distributive business (department store, food store, variety store, petroleum, restaurant, hotel/motel, and wholesaling). They were constructed for students in a distributive education simulation plan but are also appropriate for students in a cooperative plan. An introduction describes the origin of the tasks contained in the plan and suggests steps for their use. The plan for each job lists specific tasks and related tasks associated with that particular job. Eight columns are provided for recording where the student had experience with each task: class, simulated store, school store, observation, Distributive Education Clubs of America, or on-the-job training (paid or non-paid). Two columns are provided for the student and teacher to rate level of competency development. The first page of each training plan serves as a student contract and indicates the conditions under which he agrees to participate in the training experience. (Author/MS)
