Dyrenfurth, Michael J.
This module on legal responsibilities and their implications for vocational instructors is 1 in a series of 10 modules written for vocational education teacher education programs. It is specifically designed to introduce selected aspects of legal and professional requirements to the new or experienced teacher and to develop/augment competence in three areas: legal matters, liability, and safety. Introductory materials include the following: a listing of competencies/tasks to be covered, objective, overview of the module, listing of suggested resources, and content/instructional strategies, including prerequisite information. The module consists of three major subsections. Each subsection, referred to as learning experience, addresses selected competencies from the listed competencies/tasks. Additionally, each learning experience contains several different activities. The learning experiences are as follows: (1) familiarization with legal requirements associated with vocational education; (2) examining issues and practices associated with liability and its minimization; and (3) identifying, accessing, and planning a comprehensive safety program meeting state and local requirements. A learning experience may consist of some or all of these components: list of competencies/tasks, introduction, information/activity sheet(s), supplemental reading, and worksheet(s). A summary and review concludes the module. (YLB)
