FULFILLING

THE

PROMISE:

A New Education Model

For Maryland’s

Changing Workplace

Report of the Maryland Commission

On Vocational-Technical Education

August 1989

commission recommendations

career cluster frameworks
Career Cluster Frameworks
  • Influenced by VTECS White Paper Titled:

Observations Regarding the Development of Occupational/ Skill Clusters (1994 – Dr. Ronald McCage)

  • Used VTECS DIRECT to Identify Cluster Frameworks & Industry Standards
  • Involved Over 350 Maryland Employers in the Validation and Design Process
  • Focused on Breadth, Depth, & Value Added in CTE Programs
  • Moved Away From Procedural
  • Knowledge to Focus on Problem
  • Solving & Critical Thinking in CTE
quote from the report
Quote from the Report:

“A Nation at Risk” has caused people to focus too much attention on the improvement of academic education at the expense of career technical education resulting in a two-edge sword. States are trying to teach the same content in the same old way. Problem solving & teamwork are learned by solving problems & working in teams, not by being told about problem solving or teamwork in a lecture.

Bicycle Helmet Design Problem

Design a bicycle helmet that will accommodate a braided hairstyle. Prior to using the computer, sketch the top and front view using the correct dimension to acquire the required dimensions. Show all your math calculations.

Using the computer design tool, apply good design criteria of function and aesthetic value to solve this problem.

(The formula used will depend on the shape of the interior of the helmet and design of the hairstyle.)

Produce a prototype for testing.
