Literature Search. Teaching Basic Skills through Vocational Education. Technical Report.
Liu, Cheng C.
A literature search conducted during the Project, Teaching Basic Skills Through Vocational Education, focused on three main topics: instructional program data, basic skills, and instructional materials. High enrollment areas and high employment areas were first identified using such instructional program data as enrollment patterns and projected job openings for program completers of vocational education. Location and analysis of developments in job-related basic skills was the second major task undertaken. The seven major studies identified provided a broad perspective for the project, served as guides in developing instructional materials, provided examples of the occupational application of concepts, generated instructional materials, and provided field tested instructional guides. The final task of the literature search was to identify instructional materials--texts that are significant and/or dominate the vocational commercial scene and vocationally relevant basic skills materials. (Appendixes, amounting to over one-half of the report, include a complete list of enrollment of vocational education programs and projected annual average openings, list of mathematics and communication skills and concepts, Basic Skills Distribution Chart for selected occupations, and three lists of instructional materials--significant and/or dominant commercially available vocational instructional materials, ERIC and CRIS searches, and vocational-related basic skills materials.)
