Military Curriculum Materials Identification, Selection, and Acquisition Strategies and Procedures.
Budke, Wesley E.
This document represents the third 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 explains how curriculum priorities were determined; specifies strategies for selecting curriculum materials; and outlines procedures for identifying, selecting, and acquiring military curriculum materials. The first section discusses surveys conducted of State curriculum coordinators and deans of instruction of postsecondary institutions to determine curriculum priorities. A table shows which occupations received high priority in the State and postsecondary surveys. The second section discusses strategies for selection of materials needed for design of the SYSTEM, selection of courses relevant to curriculum priorities, and selection of materials within a course. A third section covers procedures for identifying, selecting, and acquiring military curriculum materials during the developmental stage of the SYSTEM and makes general recommendations on how to maintain the SYSTEM once it is implemented. Appendixes include survey letters and forms and tables indicating curriculum priorities at the secondary and postsecondary levels. (The final report of the project, which provides an overview of all project components, and reports of the other four components are available and abstracted separately.) (LMS)
