Idaho State Dept. of Education, Boise. Div. of Vocational Education.
Under the Idaho state system for curriculum development in vocational education, Technical Committees made up solely of industry personnel are responsible for drawing up task lists for each program. Accordingly, a task list for dental assistants was drawn up and used as a basis for revising the curriculum guide for fundamentals of dental assisting and expanded functions. The two volumes of the guide contain seven modules. Module 1, Fundamentals for Dental Assisting, consists of an instructor's guide with teaching guidelines, supplemental module, and a module on introduction to dental materials. Module 2, Applications of Pit and Fissure Sealants, includes a self-study module with course description, evaluation form, informational material, study questions, and references. Module 3, Temporary Crown Restorations, provides an instructor's guide detailing course requirements, materials and supplies; testing procedures; and a student module with course outline, informational material, and study questions. Module 4, Polishing Amalgam, consists of a self-study module with course outline, evaluation form, informational material, study questions, and references. Module 5, Aiding in the Administration of Nitrous Oxide-Oxygen Analgesia, contains an instructor/student module with course outline, informational material, self-examination, and bibliography. Module 6, Taking Alginate Impressions, provides a self-study module with course description, evaluation form, information material, study questions, and references. Module 7, Coronal Polishing, consists of an instructor's guide with a synopsis, outline of kinds of background knowledge students should have, lists of terminology and objectives, student module with course outline, informational material, and study questions.
