Marshall Univ., Huntington, WV. Dept. of Occupational, Adult, and Safety Education.
A core curriculum, training plans, and implementation guide developed by the project are included in this final report, which describes activities to resolve problems encountered by teachers using the IDECC (Interstate Distributive Education Curriculum Consortium) system designed for distributive education (DE) and diversified cooperative training (DCT) programs. The implementation guide gives information on (1) preparing IDECC materials for use, (2) becoming acquainted with learning activity packages, (3) use of the system, (4) the core curriculum , and (5) training plans. The competency-based core curriculum, part 1 of a curriculum for DE-DCT programs (junior year), includes an implementation guide and DE, DCT, and economics-career exploration-employability skills curricula. Each core curriculum presents instructional units composed of topics based on competency statements with IDECC code, number of behavioral objectives, and suggested learning resources. An implementation guide, sample training agreement, and training plans for twenty-two occupations comprise part 2 of the curriculum (senior year) competency-based training plans. Competencies not included in the core curriculum have been grouped to form instructional topics. Teachers and training sponsors select tasks/competencies to be developed at the training station or through one of five different instructional strategies. (YLB)
