Teacher's Guide to a Vocational Education Common Core Curriculum.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
Prepared as the result of a revision of the vocational education curricula by members of the Western State Curriculum Council (American Samoa, Arizona, California, Guam, Hawaii, Nevada, and the Trust Territories of the Pacific), this guide is intended to help meet the needs of both students and a highly technical and rapidly changing society. It provides for a common core, interdisciplinary approach to vocational training and emphasizes the concept of career education and the role of vocational education within that concept. Content focuses on six basic areas of student development: self-awareness; career development; interpersonal relationships; job acquisition, maintenance, progression, and change; personal money management; and general skills development. Each of these six areas, which are designed for adoption or adaptation on local levels, includes a summary outline, primary goals, secondary goals to be achieved in the attainment of each primary goal, and some suggested instructional techniques and activities.
