Organization of Vocational Education. Vocational Education Curriculum Specialist, Module 3.
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 four sections, each based on one of the goals. The first section looks at administration and funding of vocational education at federal, state, and local levels. In section 2 discussion focuses on purposes and relationships of various institutions and organizations offering vocational educational programs and types of programs offered. Section 3 overviews national, state, and local advisory groups. Section 4 describes purposes and characteristics of state and local annual and five-year plans. 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)
