Competency Based Education Curriculum for Prevocational Marketing and Distribution.
Kendall, Elizabeth; And Others
The curriculum contained in this guide is one of a series developed to assist teachers in implementing prevocational exploration programs concerned with distribution and marketing occupations. It is designed to complement the West Virginia "Guide for Establishing Programs of Prevocational Exploration." The curriculum consists of 35 learning packets that sample a variety of competencies performed by various workers employed in the marketing and distribution cluster. The intent of the learning packets is to assist students in assessing whether or not they would like to prepare themselves for these kinds of work, not to develop proficiency in the various occupational competencies. Each learning packet contains a career information sheet which describes occupational cluster title, occupational family, occupational task, occupational competency, suggested resources, and teacher's notes. The remainder of each learning packet consists of occupational information about the job title, learning activities, answers for learning activities where appropriate, learning objective, and evaluation criteria. Topics covered in the learning packets include identifying marketing occupations and industries, trends in marketing and distribution, skills used in these occupations, decorating store windows, buying merchandise, clerking, advertising, restaurant work, recreational activities leadership, menus for a restaurant, employee relations, motel work, service station work, stock and inventory work, shipping occupations, and preparing receiving reports and handling customer deliveries, among others.
