Cappella, Barbara Ann; Davis, Evelyn
This packet contains a program guide and a Career Merit Achievement Plan (Career MAP) for the implementation of a home health aide program in Florida secondary and postsecondary schools. The program guide outlines the legal authority for the program, describes the program content and structure, provides a program description, and includes a curriculum framework and a set of student performance standards for home health aide courses. The curriculum framework outlines major concepts and content, laboratory activities, program specifics, and intended outcomes; the student performance standards guide lists each standard and the behaviors expected of the student to show mastery of each standard. The guide also provides information on the following topics: student organization participation, student admission and teacher standards, teacher certification, facility design for home health aide laboratories and classrooms, equipment, safety, and instructional resources (a listing of 19 audiovisuals and 6 sources for audiovisual materials, 14 print materials, and 11 professional organizations and support services). It includes a sample clinical observation agreement form. The Career MAP is a checklist, to be kept by both student and teacher, of student progress in the competencies required for entry into jobs in the home health field. (KC)
