Cooperative Occupational Education and Work Experience in the Curriculum. Fourth Edition.
Mason, Ralph E.; And Others
This reference handbook is intended to assist individuals responsible for developing and implementing cooperative occupational education and work experience programs at the secondary, postsecondary, and adult levels. The following topics are covered: the strategy of aims and goal inputs (the scope of instructional programs using the work environment, development of human resources, public policy goals and institutional roles); the structure of curriculum patterns and the use of the work environment at various levels (cooperative education models; coordinators and their roles; initiation of a plan; and coordinator responsibilities at the secondary, adult, and postsecondary levels); the system of instruction and coordination (planning and carrying out effective in-school instruction, developing training stations as instructional laboratories, correlating instruction between school and job laboratories, maturation of cooperative plans, student organizations as integral parts of instruction, accountability through evaluation, and legal aspects of cooperative education); and application of the systems approach (plans in agricultural, business, health, home economics, marketing, and trade and industrial occupations). (A 20-page bibliography and a glossary are appended.) (MN)
