Vocational Health Occupations Teacher Education. Model Curriculum.
Moore, Barbara A.
This document reports the research efforts in Louisiana to develop a model teacher preparation program in health occupations education (HOE). Chapter I describes the procedures used to develop a current profile of HOE teachers in Louisiana and to determine the educational needs of HOE teachers. Chapter II is a report on the research that identified the professional education competencies needed by HOE teachers and that determined their present level of competency. An 11-page table illustrates results indicating perceived importance and teacher's individual assessment of competence for each of the 155 competencies. Chapter III describes the steps taken in the development of a Vocational Health Occupations Teacher Education Model for Louisiana. The final draft containing six educational options is presented. Requirements for each option are detailed. Descriptions follow of the courses to be developed in order to implement the various options. Objectives are listed for each course. Appendixes, amounting to over one-third of the report, include cover letters and instruments, minimum requirements for teachers of secondary and postsecondary health occupations programs, classification of instructional programs in health occupations, and suggested readings.
