Prevocational Education Implementation Manual.
Hendrix, Mary W.
This manual is intended for use by administrators and teachers in the implementation of prevocational education courses. Section I explains prevocational education. It discusses stages of career development, goals, teacher qualifications, student selection, instruction, and essential elements. Section II contains an instructional delivery outline developed for a prevocational semester course, including estimated time on task. The three units in section III are essential elements common to all vocational programs: leadership; employability skills; and entrepreneurship. Each unit consists of these components: unit and specific objectives, notes to the instructor (outline of steps to follow in accomplishing specific objectives), information sheets, transparency masters, activity sheets, tests, and answers to activities and tests. Section IV provides materials for use in teaching prevocational education essential elements. Contents include information on developing exploratory experiences, listings of careers and job descriptions classified by program area, information on preparing a unit on hand tools and equipment common to the occupational area, and four units on obtaining occupational information, safety, and career awareness (understanding oneself and decision making). Each unit has the components described above. Section V is an annotated bibliography of career guidance and occupation specific materials. (YLB)
