American Institutes for Research in the Behavioral Sciences, Palo Alto, CA.
One of six introductory modules in a 22-module series designed to train vocational education curriculum specialists (VECS), this guide is intended for use by both instructor and student in a variety of education environments, including independent study, team teaching, seminars, and workshops, as well as in more conventional classroom settings. The guide has five major sections. Part I, Organization and Administration, contains an overview and rationale, educational goals and performance objectives, recommended learning materials, and suggested reference materials. Part II, Content and Study Activities, contains the content outline arranged by goals. Study activities for each goal and its corresponding objectives follow each section of the content outline. Content focus is on early and contemporary vocational education legislation, the National Study Panel Reports that provide the basis for the three major pieces of vocational education legislation, the Smith-Hughes Act of 1917, the Vocational Education Act of 1963, and the Vocational Education Amendments of 1968. Part III, Group and Classroom Activities, suggests classroom or group activities and discussions keyed to specific content in the outline and to specific materials in the list of references. Part IV, Student Self-Check, contains questions directly related to the goals and objectives of the module, which may be used as a pretest or posttest or as a periodic self-check for students in determining their own progress throughout the module. Part V, Appendix, contains suggested responses to the study activities from part II and responses to the student self-checks. (HD)
