The Blue Hills Model; A Collaborative Experiment in Career Development. Volume 2--A Health Services Curriculum.
Blue Hills Regional Career Education Center, Canton, MA.
With the goal of bringing relevancy to the learning process, the Blue Hills Regional Technical Education Center in Canton, Massachusetts has developed an integrated curriculum relating career development laboratory instruction to theoretical instruction and applying the process to a health services cluster. The health services program provides an orientation to health careers with classroom instruction and laboratory practice at the secondary level. The course presents basic health and health occupation skills. An analysis of job performances, or occupational analysis (OA), is the curriculum base, which is then translated into performance objectives, and finally sequentially grouped into developmental learning hierarchies, forming laboratory instructional units. Related performance objectives paralleling laboratory instruction were developed by science, math, social studies, English, and foreign language teachers to produce integrated instructional units.
