Developing Positive Worker Behaviors in Vocational and Technical Students. Competency-Based Vocational Education Administrator Module Series.
Norton, Robert E.; Kurth, Paula K.
This guide is intended to assist vocational administrators in meeting their responsibilities in the area of planning and implementing programs to help vocational students develop the positive attitudes and behaviors that are essential to success in the workplace. The first chapter defines the types of attitudes and behaviors that are sought by employers and explains why they are so important. A brief summary of the research findings from studies of generalizable work behaviors and from studies on occupationally specific skills are presented next. Chapter 3 discusses nonintegrative and integrative instructional strategies and techniques. Methods of assessing behaviors are examined in the final chapter. The greater part of the guide consists of five appendixes which provide extensive annotated listings of available materials in the following categories: assessment instruments, curriculum development materials, instructional aids, instructional materials, and instructional material and assessment instruments.
