Curriculum Coordinator Project. Final Report.
North Fayette County Area Vocational Technical School, Connellsville, PA.
A project was conducted to develop pedagogical skills necessary for teaching competency-based vocational education (CBVE) among the 17 teachers at the North Fayette Area Vocational-Technical School (Pennsylvania). Activities included validating a list of competencies for each vocational area using local craft committees; developing pedagogical skills necessary to write performance objectives for all competencies on the validated list of competencies; and designing a system for the development of an individualized instructional approach to curriculum-based on-career objectives of secondary students. These activities were carried out on a one-to-one basis between curriculum coordinators and teachers during released time for inservice teacher education. As a result of the project, instructors became more proficient in working with competency-based vocational education; a competency-based approach to curriculum was developed at the school; and craft committees, instructors, and curriculum coordinators developed a closer working relationship and better knowledge of CBVE. (Included in the report are competency-based vocational education materials developed through the project, lesson plans, sample validated task lists, and evaluation instruments.) (Author/KC)
