Health Careers Cooperative Education in Georgia High Schools.
Georgia Univ., Athens. Div. of Vocational Education.
Methods in planning and implementing effective courses in health careers cooperative education are presented in this manual designed to serve as a guide for cooperative education teacher-coordinators. The guide is the result of a project conducted to explore the feasibility of cooperative education as a means of serving the needs of high school students who wish to enter the health field. (Health careers cooperative education is one component of a 3-year health careers curriculum for secondary schools in Georgia, where the project was conducted.) Material contained in this guide reflects the experiences of teacher-coordinators who participated in a series of workshops related to developing and implementing cooperative education programs. The following topics are discussed: Health careers program philosophy, overview of the 3-year curriculum (quarter by quarter), health careers cooperative education program description, planning and organizing, and the role of teacher coordinator in planning the student's work experience and placement. References on cooperative education are listed. Appendixes contain an example of local policies in health careers cooperative education, forms required by the Georgia State Department of Education, the Fair Labor Standards Act, and recommended texts and references. A companion volume is available which was designed to present, with the use of both volumes, a total curriculum guide for a 3-year health careers education program. (TA)
