The Scope of Vocational Education. Vocational Education Curriculum Specialist, Module 2.
Wheeler, Jeanette D.
One of five modules in the foundation series of the 16-module series designed to train vocational education curriculum specialists, this module is intended for use in classes or individual study arrangements at the preservice or inservice level by students with varying amounts of experience in vocational education. (These modules are revised versions of earlier study guides--see note.) Introductory materials include an overview, instructions to the learner, detailed list of behavioral goals and objectives, and resources needed to complete learning activities. The module is divided into three sections, each based on one of the goals. The first section describes vocational education's evolution; its changing definition; its relationship to general, career, postsecondary, and adult education; and impact of federal policy and legislation. The philosophic, economic, and sociological concepts underlying vocational education are considered in section 2. The third section focuses on data on enrollment and financial statistics. Each section follows a standard format: text, individual study activities, discussion questions, and group activities. A summary of the module follows. Appendixes include suggested responses to the study activities, a self-check, responses to the self-check, and recommended references. (YLB)
