A Model Distributive Education Competency Based Learning Laboratory. Final Report. Research Series No. 25.
Strate, James W.; Brorson, Bruce
The research project focused on the utilization of the model-school store as a distributive education learning laboratory. Objectives were to: (1) Determine the competencies required of teacher-coordinators, (2) determine the instructional materials and equipment needed, (3) develop a model-school store curriculum for secondary education, and (4) provide a model-school store learning laboratory for teacher-coordinators. Based upon a literature review and advisory committee recommendations, 226 teacher-coordinator competencies (developed by Lucy Crawford) were all accepted as essential, and state supervisors of distributive education were contacted for information about programs in their state. Seventy teacher-coordinators responded to a questionnaire survey regarding the operation of the model store at their school. In addition, 30 personal interviews on employment skills were conducted with local business personnel. A major survey finding was that state supervision had the greatest impact on the implementation of model-school stores. Specific recommendations are offered for preservice and inservice training of teacher-coordinators. Appended are the correspondence and survey instruments, Crawford's list of competencies, a distributive education supplies and equipment budget, and list of references. (Author/RG)
