Common Core Curriculum for Vocational Education. Category E: Curriculum Design in Vocational Education. E-1: Developing a Curriculum Design in Vocational Education.
This module on developing a curriculum design is one of a set of three on curriculum design in vocational education and is part of a larger series of thirty-four modules constituting a core curriculum 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, six lessons are presented: (1) examining what is meant by curriculum; (2) examining the elements which go into determining the nature of curriculum design; (3) investigating relationship of the vocational education curriculum to curriculum design and to the general curriculum of a school; (4) integrating vocational education in the design of the general educational curriculum; (5) exploring procedures for developing a vocational education curriculum; and (6) participating in the development of a vocational education curriculum. 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)
