A Training Module: Developing a Job Entry, Individualized Curriculum.
Ripley, William K.; Arredondo, Trish
Materials contained in this training module are designed to carry the classroom teacher through a step-by-step process for developing a job entry, individualized curriculum which involves two phases. (Phase 1 is the preparation or developmental phase which looks closely at the job and the student, and includes the job description, task analysis, description of the student population, job prerequisites, prerequisite test, and job objectives. Phase 2, the curriculum phase, is designed for actual student use in the form of learning activity packages (LAPs). These two phases together form a job entry curriculum.) This individualized module is separated into eight enabling elements, each of which includes a pre-assessment and study questions. Enabling elements include the following: (1) Analyze a job description and a task analysis, (2) analyze a given student population by developing a student population description, prerequisites, and prerequisite test, (3) construct a goal statement, (4) construct a specific objective, (5) given a task analysis, develop corresponding job objectives, (6) define each of the following as they relate to a LAP: Goal, specific objectives, activities, pretest, and posttest, (7) given a set of job objectives, develop a LAP, and (8) given classroom problem situations involving individualized instruction, identify possible solutions. A complete module post-assessment is presented at the conclusion of the module. Answer keys for selected study questions and post-assessment are included. (TA)
