ISSOE Student Guidance and Development of Personalized Occupational Education Programs. Findings and Recommendations, Final Report.
Beuke, Vernon; Frank, Robert
The Instructional Support System for Occupational Education (ISSOE) project focused on (1) review of individualized education systems, (2) selection of appropriate occupational clusters, and (3) development and field testing of a system and materials. Exemplary and innovative approaches to individualized education were reviewed by site visits and a literature review which produced a project brochure, a teacher's guide to decision making, and a teacher manual clarifying major issues. Selection of the occupational clusters, Business/Office Occupations and Automotive Mechanics, was based on existence of well-developed ISSOE curricula and related work in these skill areas by another ISSOE project (CE 023 531). Steps in an individualized education system are notice of planning, student program planning, and development of an individual program plan (IPP)/individual education plan (IEP). The Individual Program Planning Information (IPPI) form and Teacher Planning Worksheet developed were tested by students and teachers. Business educators evaluated the teacher's guide and other ISSOE materials. Publications and meetings disseminated project activities. Recommendations for ISSOE implementation are dissemination/implementation, field testing, and evaluation of the materials developed; implementation workshops for teachers; and compilation and dissemination to teachers of lists of instructional support materials compatible with ISSOE. (Appendixes include a leaflet on individualizing education and the IPPI form.) (YLB)
