Resource Guide to Competency-Based Vocational Education: Health Occupations.
Foster, Phillip R., Comp.
This resource guide for classroom teachers contains annotations of resources representing recent instructional development in competency-based education for health occupations. It is also intended to assist curriculum specialists, administrators, and supervisors in development of performance-based instructional programs. The guide is divided into three sections. The first provides occupational information for use as reference material in developing instructional materials, student career information, and guidance information. Section 2 contains descriptions of two categories of curriculum resources--print and nonprint materials. Printed instructional materials include curriculum guides, course outlines, learning activity packages, task analyses, occupational inventories, student manuals, performance objectives, and tests. Nonprint materials include 16mm films, filmstrips, filmloops, slides, and transparencies. Each of the two categories is divided into seven subject areas: Registered Nurse/Licensed Practical Nurse, Nursing Assistant/Aide, Health Occupations--General, Dental Assisting, Dental Technology, Medical Assisting, and Medical Lab Technician. Each reference provides the following information: title, publisher or source with address, annotation, number of pages or length, and cost. A listing and description of periodicals related to health occupations is also provided. The guide's third section lists names and addresses of trade and professional organizations. (YLB)
