A Manual of Competency Matched Instructional Materials for Developing Coal Mining Curricula.
Katz, Douglas S.; Oglesby, Elizabeth H.
To assist in the development of secondary level coal mining curricula, this report identifies sixty-four competencies considered by coal mining companies and instructors to be of major or moderate importance. Also, four tables are used to aid curriculum planners. Table 1 contains occupational competencies ranked in importance for the secondary level coal mining curriculum; the instructional level is also included. Table 2 lists occupational competencies matched to available instructional resources, and table 3 presents an inventory of available instructional training resources matched to the coal mining competencies (knowledges and skills) which they cover. Table 4 inventories available instructional resources by source, title, author, description, and price. Following the tables are four procedural steps for curriculum planners: (1) identify competencies for inclusion in the coal mining curriculum; (2) identify instructional materials available for use in teaching the competencies selected in step 1; (3) match instructional/training materials to competencies to determine materials best suited for teaching competencies identified in step 1; and (4) make final selection of instructional/training materials to be used in the secondary level coal mining curriculum for entry-level miners.
