Developing Workplace Education Curriculum.
This guide, which is intended for project directors, coordinators, and other professional staff involved in developing/delivering workplace education programs, explains the process of developing a functional context workplace education curriculum. Discussed first are the following: the types of information needed to develop a functional context curriculum; procedures for gathering the information; and the process of using the goals, objectives, and critical tasks defined by a workplace advisory council to organize the information gathered. The following components of a workplace education curriculum module are explained and illustrated: workplace education module goal(s); workplace education objective(s); workplace competencies; and basic skills. Next, the functional context approach of translating identified job tasks into job performance indicators is illustrated, and workplace competencies, and basic skills are outlined. The four components of general lesson plans (background information, demonstration, practice, extension) are explained, and the organization and layout of a typical lesson plan are illustrated with a sample lesson plan taken from a workplace writing module. Concluding the guide are a brief discussion of the process of reviewing/validating a workplace education curriculum and a list of four informational resources. (MN)
