Introduction to Vocations Program Handbook. Vocational-Technical Education.
Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu. Office of Instructional Services.
Resulting from an evaluation of the Introduction to Vocations Program by Hawaii's State, district school, and community personnel, this handbook is intended to provide the necessary directions and guidelines for those schools interested in implementing the program. (The program is a restructured vocational-technical program for Hawaii's high schools, designed to provide meaningful occupational experiences in eight occupational clusters. Emphasis is placed on cooperative work experiences in industry in the advanced stages of occupational exploration.) The first section includes an overview of the total restructured vocational-technical program for the State of Hawaii, followed by a more detailed description of the Introduction to Vocational Program and its primary objectives. Another section discusses the delineated roles of each program participant at the various levels and identifies the specific function of each. Sample units of instruction for the eight clusters of occupations as well as an example of a guidance unit are the major contents of this handbook. Exemplary school level plans developed by program teams from various schools, giving time schedules for tasks that need to be accomplished for program implementation are included in the appendix section. Informational materials such as standard equipment and tool lists for the various courses of study, and task analysis procedures are also included for reference purposes. (HD)
