Establishing Curriculum Components: A Guide for New Hampshire Vocational Educators.
Faust, John R.
Developed as part of a New Hampshire project entitled "Curriculum Activity Planning for Schools," this guide provides an overview to creating a format and the appropriate components for a competency-based vocational secondary school curriculum. First, the curriculum components are identified, and directions are provided for their development. Divided into the three phases of the curriculum design process, the components are classified as inputs (developing program and needs assessment data statement, establishing job family cluster, and analyzing tasks to create competencies), plan (creating instructional objectives and selecting learning activities and instructional resources), and outputs (developing evaluation techniques and designing effective recordkeeping). For each component two examples are provided except for needs assessment which only requires one example. A checklist of the curriculum components is included at the end for vocational educators to use in assessing their programs. A supplemental document designed to accompany this guide is entitled "How to Develop a Curriculum for Vocational Education--A Manual for New Hampshire's Vocational Educators" (CE 021 832) and provides more detailed information and worksheets for each component.
