To Develop a Competency-Based Curriculum Guide for a Graphic Arts Vocational Program for Secondary Schools.
Pollock, Steve; And Others
The Johnsburg High School (McHenry, Illinois) curriculum project was designed to accomplish the following eight objectives: (1) develop a competency curriculum guide for a graphic arts program that will provide lessons for the instructor to use to implement this program; (2) determine job competencies, including minimum competencies for job entry; (3) determine career ladders and criteria for promotion in this field; (4) develop a list of teaching resources; (5) field test materials developed and make the needed changes; (6) print in quantity for each school to receive a copy; (7) disseminate material developed statewide by the use of workshops and demonstration days at the school; and (8) develop the materials in two parts, including a curriculum guide for the classroom teacher's use and self study packets for students' use. First, a review of the literature was conducted to find available materials. In addition, the advisory council was expanded to provide input from business and industry. Finally, the guidelines found in "Specification and Model Format for Curriculum Programs" were followed in the development of the materials. The results were intended as a model for all vocational programs in the school to use in developing competency-based programs. (A major portion of this document contains the lists of identified competencies, the lesson plans developed for Graphic Arts courses I and II, and an appended bibliography and resource lists.)
