Curriculum Development in Occupational Exploration.
Tarboro City Schools, NC.
A project conducted by Tarboro City Schools (North Carolina) involved the development of an individualized curriculum, suitable for students in grades 7, 8, and 9. Emphasis for the project was on using the most effective components of different approaches from across the State to meet the State's goals for occupational exploration, while providing organized experiences for the student. The project consisted of eight steps: The development of goal statements; the compilation of a list of occupations for each of 15 selected occupational clusters; selection of a sample of occupations which represented favorable employment opportunities and various levels of training and educational requirements; correlation of the developed goal statement with the selected occupations; the development of appropriate learning experiences for each of the occupations; the pilot testing and revision of the developed curriculum; the field testing and revision of the developed curriculum; and the dissemination of the developed curriculum. The project resulted in a curriculum consisting of 144 study units, 47 information board games, and a comprehensive teacher's guide. This report of the project includes a sample study unit, a teacher evaluation form, list of selected occupations, and other curriculum related material. (SH)
