North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Vocational Education.
This teacher handbook provides recommended goals and objectives and suggested measures for competency-based courses in the vocational program area of prevocational education. A background and overview section contains the philosophy and rationale, discusses thinking skills and programs for exceptional children, and provides notes that explain how to read the goals, objectives, and measures and offer suggestions for student placement, textbook use, and activities. This specific information is then provided for a vocational education competency-based curriculum: purpose and overview (target groups, philosophy, curriculum planning and design) and course of study. For prevocational education are offered a program description, learning outcomes, and scope and sequence. In addition to the prevocational education course options for grades 7-9, the curriculum includes a prevocational education/pre-employability skills course. Materials provided for each course include a topical outline and a one-page format for each competency goal that details grade level, skills/subject area, the competency goal, objective(s), and measure(s) (suggestions of ways in which students may demonstrate their ability to meet the objective).
