Utilization of Military-Developed Curriculum Materials in Civilian Vocational Programs: A School Survey.
Dozier, Earnestine A.; And Others
This document represents the second of five components of a project conducted to design a comprehensive information system (termed SYSTEM) for identifying, selecting, and disseminating relevant military curriculum materials to civilian vocational and technical education programs. This particular report discusses a survey involving 175 educators in 88 secondary and postsecondary schools to determine civilian educator experiences with the acquisition and use of military curriculum materials and to identify desirable characteristics of a centralized SYSTEM. An introductory chapter conveys the need and purposes of the survey. Chapter II, Review of the Literature, contains sections on similarities between military and civilian jobs, the use of military-developed materials in civilian schools, acquiring military materials for civilian use, advantages of using military curriculum materials, and potential problems in using military materials in civilian schools. Chapter III describes the methodology of the survey. In chapter IV, the findings of the school survey are summarized under the following categories: Background information selection and acquisition of materials; use of materials; curriculum materials needs; and desirable characteristics of a new SYSTEM. Chapter V contains conclusions of the survey, implications and recommendations for design of the SYSTEM, and recommendations for further research. Appendixes include survey forms, correspondence related to the survey, and lists of curriculum priority areas. (LMS)
