Dopkin, Doris, Ed.; And Others
This document contains descriptions of projects in vocational education, including home economics and industrial arts, which were developed by participants in workshops for nondiscriminatory curriculum development training. The first seven chapters describe projects dealing with (1) high school program planning (vocational enrollment survey, curriculum planning using teacher/student questionnaire, advisory committee role), (2) public relations: information and affirmative action (school-wide displays; classroom presentations; reaching other staff, parents, and the community), (3) working with elementary students (awareness lessons, fifth-grade career education media project, sixth-grade project in preparation for junior high), (4) integrated units for junior/high middle school (introductory home economics units, creativity through sewing, household appliance use, beginning wood-working), (5) team approaches to integrated/vocational education (exchange programs, freshman cycle program, unified arts programs), (6) high school units (introduction to electricity/electronics general car care mini-course; father role in child development; home management, housing, and human development; clothing and textiles for the sports person; business education awareness unit), and (7) career education (role models and nontraditional careers, hands-on projects, careers in clothing and manufacturing). Chapter 8 describes a successful sex desegregation program. Appendixes, amounting to approximately one-half of the document, contain materials related to the various projects and arranged under the same headings. (YLB)
