The Development and Testing of a Statewide Multilevel Curriculum Management System for Georgia Vocational Education Programs. Curriculum Management Handbook for Vocational Administrators in Comprehensive High Schools, Post-Secondary Area Vocational-Technical Schools and Community College Vocational Programs.
Scott, Paul; Moye, Mike
Developed to assist the building-level administrator in implementing a curriculum management system, this handbook considers two of five duties the vocational administrator must perform to meet the obligations of curriculum management: (1) performing curriculum management functions for the vocational program and (2) implementing and conducting an evaluation system for the vocational program. Following a task listing for each of the five duties, the handbook is divided into two sections that describe in detail the tasks and subtasks of duties 4 and 5. The section on the curriculum management duty discusses three major functions/tasks: program design and development; selection and organization of vocational education content, training, and materials; and coordination of human resources for curriculum and instructional purposes. Specific topics include basic beliefs upon which vocational curriculum is based, sample delivery systems, a planning format, strategies for implementation, a vocational education materials development model, articulation, individualized instruction, and classroom management. The section on evaluation is limited to curriculum planning and improvement. Four areas are discussed: collecting and analyzing workforce information, advisory committees and the curriculum, evaluating curriculum materials, and student and employer followup. Followup materials are included. Complete outlines of duties 4 and 5 and an "Administrator's Bookshelf" listing standard references are appended. (YLB)
