Vocational Education and Connecticut's Common Core of Learning.
Connecticut State Dept. of Education, Hartford. Div. of Vocational, Technical, and Adult Education.
The Connecticut State Board of Education policy known as the Common Core of Learning, outlines the skill, knowledge and attitudinal attainments expected of the state's secondary school graduates. This guide identifies the common core elements that can and should be reinforced through the vocational education curriculum. Information on the common core is provided for these subject areas of vocational education: business office education, consumer home economics, occupational home economics, cooperative work education/diversified occupations, health occupations, marketing education, technology education/industrial arts, trade and industrial education, and vocational education in agriculture. Course offerings are examined in each subject area. The common core elements are identified and numbered according to three headings: attributes and attitudes, skills and competencies, and understandings and applications. Each common core element is rated according to how much emphasis it should be given in the curriculum (major, moderate, or minor focus or not a focus). The guide also provides the text of the Common Core of Learning. (KC)
