Multi-cultural competency-based vocational/technical curricula series : VESL guidelines by Larry Hepburn( Book )

18 editions published between 1981 and 1982 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document, one of eight in a multi-cultural competency-based vocational/technical curricula series, is on clerical occupations. This program is designed to run 36 weeks and cover 10 instructional areas: beginning typing, typing I, typing ii, duplicating, receptionist activities, general office procedures, operation of electronic calculator, business math, accounting, and business English. A duty-task index lists competencies in each instructional area that the student should be able to perform at the end of the program. For example, in the duplicating section, a student should be able to (1) prepare the master for fluid duplicator, (2) operate a fluid duplicator, (3) type a stencil, (4) duplicate copies on a stencil duplicator, (5) produce a master copy from the thermo-fax for the fluid duplicator, and (6) produce a master copy for the stencil machine. In section 1, each instructional task area contains a list of performance objectives, evaluation criterion, performance guide, and a list of tasks to be covered. In section 2, the introduction and duty-task index is repeated in English, Spanish, and Laotian. Section 3 lists technical terms concerning clerical occupations in English, Spanish, and Laotian. (Ct)

Current and future employment opportunities in new and emerging occupations within Illinois : final project report RDI-A8-599 by Sally H Spetz( Book )

4 editions published between 1978 and 1980 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An Illinois project identified new and emerging occupations within the state and determined the types, levels, and distribution of new vocational education curricula needed to meet employment demands for skilled workers in those occupations. Project staff reviewed similar national research efforts, recently enacted Illinois legislation, and technical and trade journals to identify potential new occupations. Telephone contacts were made with over 450 individuals nationwide, representing industries, educational institutions, professional and trade associations, government agencies, labor unions, service organizations, and private employers. Study findings identified seven new and emerging occupations for which new curricula should be offered: biomedical equipment technician, industrial hygiene technician, podiatric assistant, therapeutic recreation technician, swine confinement facility assistant manager, solar energy technician, and halfway house resident manager. Each was described in terms of job duties, educational requirements, typical employers, present sources of workers, linkages with established occupations or industrial sectors, and current and projected estimates of statewide manpower demand. (A curriculum planning and resource guide for each occupation is available separately. See Note.) Further, twelve occupations were identified as potential new and emerging occupations, due to pending legislation, technology, or borderline demand estimates. (Job duties and exclusion criteria are provided for approximately forty occupations which did not qualify.) (Ylb)

A manual of competency matched instructional materials for developing coal mining curricula by Douglas S Katz( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To assist in the development of secondary level coal mining curricula, this report identifies sixty-four competencies considered by coal mining companies and instructors to be of major or moderate importance. Also, four tables are used to aid curriculum planners. Table 1 contains occupational competencies ranked in importance for the secondary level coal mining curriculum; the instructional level is also included. Table 2 lists occupational competencies matched to available instructional resources, and table 3 presents an inventory of available instructional training resources matched to the coal mining competencies (knowledges and skills) which they cover. Table 4 inventories available instructional resources by source, title, author, description, and price. Following the tables are four procedural steps for curriculum planners: (1) identify competencies for inclusion in the coal mining curriculum; (2) identify instructional materials available for use in teaching the competencies selected in step 1; (3) match instructional/training materials to competencies to determine materials best suited for teaching competencies identified in step 1; and (4) make final selection of instructional/training materials to be used in the secondary level coal mining curriculum for entry-level miners.
