Competency-Based Curriculum for Prevocational Exploration. Marine/Fresh Water.
Reese, Clara C.
This competency-based curriculum is intended to help teachers of prevocational career exploration courses in West Virginia to present information about marine/fresh water occupations. The document is organized into five units: fisheries, life sciences, marine life cultivation, research, and water vehicle operation. Each unit consists of five to 15 lesson plans, each on various occupations in those occupational clusters. In addition, there is an introductory and a culminating lesson for the course. Each lesson plan includes a career information sheet (with a job title, duties, sample employment locations, an employment outlook, education and training requirements, special qualifications needed, earnings and benefits, and working conditions and life-styles), resources and/or materials (such as worksheets and evaluation sheets), learning objectives, learning activities, and evaluation procedures. The curriculum guide is illustrated with cartoon-like drawings. (KC)
