Metric Education: An Implementation Guide for Vocational, Technical, and Adult Educators.
Cooper, Gloria S.
Intended to aid vocational and adult educators in implementing metric education in their classrooms, this guide is one product of a curriculum development project which produced an annotated bibliography, a position paper, 58 metric instructional packages, and a series of inservice workshops. The guide first gives an overview of the contents of the instructional packages developed for 77 occupation program areas and for adult basic education programs. Then guidelines for developing an implementation plan are presented, after which activities designed to provide information about metrication to school personnel, students, and the community are described. Finally, instructions for conducting inservice workshops to prepare educators to use the packages are given. The appendix includes all items contained in the metric participant workshop folder. (BM)
