This book deals with six major areas related to vocational instruction: foundations of instruction, curriculum planning and development, instructional strategies, instruction for students with special needs, student organizations as an integral part of instruction, and the appraisal of the instructional process. The foundations of learning section contains three chapters that emphasize humanistic and affective education. The remainder of the chapters give attention to the role of leadership and supervision in improving instruction. The curriculum section includes chapters on the principles of curriculum planning, competency-based programs, expectations and standards, and the use of research and employer needs. The first two chapters of the instructional strategies section focus on inoividualized instruction. The other chapters explore materials and techniques, career development, the use of military curriculum materials, and instructional media. Chapters in the special needs section expound upon instructional techniques for mentally handicapped and minorities, curriculum modification, and classroom management. The student organizations section uses three student organizations as examples of how they contribute to the vocational education instructional process. The final section of the book contains two chapters focusing on assessment as the base for instructional evaluation and appraisal techniques for evaluating vocational instruction. (LRA)
