Handbook for Developing Competency Based Curricula for New and Emerging Occupations. A Handbook for California Vocational Educators.
Maxwell, G. W.; West, Linda Nunes
This handbook is designed to help vocational educators identify changes in the labor market and to incorporate these changes quickly and effectively into their curricula. It guides teachers and administrators through the major steps in developing competency-based curricula for new and emerging occupations--i.e., (1) to identify new and emerging occupations; (2) to perform task analysis on a new and emerging occupation; and (3) to develop competency-based vocational education curricula. The handbook is divided into three major parts corresponding to each of these three steps. Each section contains a list of terms used in it, as well as the step-by-step procedures. Examples and sample forms for vocational educator use are also included. The rationale for competency-based vocational education is also explained in the document. (KC)
