Bacon, E. Miles
A project was undertaken to implement competency-based vocational education (CBVE) programs at the three technical centers in Palm Beach County, Florida. Project staff presented staff development activities designed to orient vocational educators to the multi-center CBVE planning system. Valuable support services were also provided to vocational instructors in resource coordination and curriculum development. Core/option plans were developed for 25 program areas. "Write Student Learning Guides" was developed to aid instructors in developing learning packets. During the project year, 79 learning guides and a checklist to aid instructors in evaluating their learning guides were developed. Following the 10-page narrative are extensive appendixes. The 25 core/option plans detail the core curriculum and related tasks as well as options and related tasks. The learning guide on how to write student learning guides contains performance and enabling objectives; learning activities, resources, instruction sheet, and self-check for each enabling objective; and a performance test. A listing of completed learning guides and the learning guide checklist are also provided. (YLB)
