Health Occupations Cluster. Secondary Curriculum Guide.
Simpson, Bruce; And Others
This curriculum guide was designed for use in secondary health occupations education programs in Georgia. It provides a model for organizing vocational instructional content in health occupations, such as nurse, dental assistant, medical lab technician, radiologic technician, emergency medical technician, respiratory therapy assistant, medical assistant, or operating room technician. The first two sections of 10 explain the philosophy and objectives of state and local vocational education, and of the guide. In section 3, the health occupations field is described; and employability skills, student exit points, and tasks cross referenced to the Dictionary of Occupational Titles are listed. The curriculum structure and course outline are provided in section 4, while section 5, the main part of the guide, provides unit guides for each task to be taught. (For each task, a task description, student performance objective, suggested instructional activities, instructional materials, evaluation sections, and suggested classroom hours are included.) Section 6 contains references and resources, while student record forms comprise section 7. Following suggestions for working with special needs students (section 8), the guide concludes with a facility layout for a learning resource center and a laboratory, and definitions of terms (sections 9 and 10).
