Work Experience. Florida Vocational Program Guide.
Florida State Univ., Tallahassee. Center for Instructional Development and Services.
This program guide identifies primary considerations in the organization, operation, and evaluation of a work experience program designed for the potential school leaver. The program philosophy is set forth. Program content is then presented. A curriculum framework specifies the exact course title, course number, levels of instruction, major course content, laboratory activities, special notes, major course concepts, and intended outcomes. Student performance standards are a resource list of job-specific competencies. The next section includes facility design criteria, suggested equipment and supplies, and safety information. The section on implementation considers student learning guides and employer relations. A section on professional considerations addresses certification coverage and lists professional organizations and support services. The final section lists instructional resources: sources of print materials and audiovisual materials and software, teacher-recommended materials, and Florida Educational Information Service services. A sample student learning guide, samples of forms mentioned in the curriculum framework, and additional sample forms are appended. A Career Merit Achievement Plan (Career MAP) displays the student performance standards required by the local education agency and documents students' level of achievement. (YLB)
