Common Core Curriculum for Vocational Education. Category A: Introduction to Vocational Education. A-3: Vocational Legislation.
This module on vocational legislation is one of a set of four providing an introduction to vocational education and is part of a larger series of thirty-four modules constituting a core curriculum intended for use in the professional preparation of vocational educators in the areas of agricultural, business, home economics, and industrial education. Following the module objective and overview and a bibliography of suggested resource materials (readings) for the entire module, three lessons are presented: (1) gaining an understanding of the significance of early and present legislation on vocational education; (2) reviewing the national study panels and reports that provided the basis for the major pieces of vocational legislation; and (3) analysis of the economic, political, professional, and social factors of the times that led to the legislation enactment of the Smith Hughes Act of 1917, the Vocational Education Act of 1963, and the Vocational Amendments of 1968 and 1976. Each lesson contains the objective, overview, a list of suggested learning activities, and a list of suggested resources (readings). Concluding the module is a pre/posttest and an answer key. (The modules have been field tested in various educational settings, including bachelor and masters degree programs, and are considered adaptable to many instructional styles and student entry levels. CE 018 935-937 contain working papers and other materials used in the development of the module series.) (JH)
