Sample Lesson Ideas for Basic Skill Instruction in Selected Vocational Programs. Teaching Basic Skills through Vocational Education. Technical Report.
Dunn, James A.; And Others
Sample lesson ideas are provided for 23 high-enrollment, secondary vocational programs in the areas of agricultural, distributive, office, health, occupational home economics, and trade and industrial education. They focus on specific skills in mathematics, reading, writing, and oral communication appropriate to and embedded in the content of these programs. Introductory materials are an overview of the ideas and description of the sample lesson ideas and their use. Divided into four sections by the type of basic skill, each sample lesson idea consists of two pages. The first page contains the setting characteristic of the lesson, including vocational area and program and job title(s) that form the context for the lesson ideas presented, basic skill area and specific application of the skill, list of the sequence of student behaviors needed to perform the job-related skill, and potential areas of student difficulty in fundamental skills. The second page contains suggested instructional activities keyed to potential fundamental difficulties identified on the first page, sketches of teaching aids (worksheets, game boards, list of terms), and common materials to carry out activities.
