Anderson, Nancy; And Others
This is one of a set of five handbooks compiled by the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory which describes the processes for planning and operating a total Experience-Based Career Education (EBCE) program. Processes and material are those developed by the original EBCE model--Community Experiences in Career Education or (CE)2. The area of operations to which this handbook is devoted is curriculum and instruction. There are nine sections. Curriculum Outcomes concerns general outcome goals and specific objectives for prescribing student performance. Learning Plan Negotiation focuses on prescribing individualized learning plans tailored to student needs, interests, abilities, and learning style. The next six sections describe planning and implementation procedures for these activities: career explorations, projects (individualized learning contracts), learning and skill-building levels (more extensive student involvement in projects and skill development activities at workplaces), competencies, student journals, and employer seminars. The final section describes EBCE's approach to using community learning resources. Each section has three basic parts: (1) review, including definition of the EBCE element discussed, purposes and underlying assumptions of that element, and people involved in delivering it; (2) steps to follow; and (3) narrative section explaining process behind each step. Extensive appendixes contain supplementary materials; an index to all the handbooks is also provided. (YLB)
