Cooperative Education Coordinator's Handbook.
Designed to serve as a guide for teacher-coordinators, counselors, administrators, and the employing community, this handbook is a performance-oriented desk reference that provides a base for cooperative education program operations. Chapter 1 overviews cooperative education, contrasts cooperative training and work experience programs, and provides guidelines for establishing and operating cooperative programs. Chapter 2 identifies unique characteristics for various types of cooperative education programs: cooperative office education, distributive education/marketing, interdisciplinary cooperative education, vocational agriculture occupational training, and vocational cooperative home economics. Appendixes give occupational objective codes for various curriculum areas. Chapter 3 briefly discusses the teacher-coordinator role. A job description and specifications and chart of areas of responsibility are appended. Chapter 4 describes characteristics of training stations/sponsors and provides sample checklists. Coordination is the focus of chapter 5. Extensive appendixes include these sample materials: time lines, competency profile folder, application for enrollment, local program requirements, student data forms (training plans, job record, enrollment form), and coordination records. Chapter 6 discusses advisory committees, their composition, and techniques for use in meetings. Sample rosters and correspondence and example agendas are appended. (YLB)
