Competency Based Competitive Events. Integrating DECA into the DE Instructional Program.
Cosgrove, Glenna; Moore, Harold W.
Designed to be integrated into a competency-based distributive education program, these competitive DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America) events were developed, utilized, and evaluated by distributive education and cooperative education coordinators in Arkansas. These events are organized under the following occupational categories: food service; apparel and accessories; general merchanise; and food marketing. They are further divided into instructional areas under each occupational category. The instructional areas covered include selling, display, human relations, communication, mathematics, produce and service technology, advertising, management, operations, and merchandising. Competencies to be tested, objectives, and a brief description are provided for each event, along with instruction sheets for staff, students, customers, and judges. A final evaluation sheet is also included. (BM)
