DEVELOPING CAREER MAJOR COURSES

Chapter 3 dealt with establishing career majors and identifying the courses to be part of career major programs, Tech Prep programs, academies, or magnet schools. If the courses within the major are to be revised or adapted, the next step is to detail and develop each course within the major. In some instances, this means creating new courses, or it may mean documenting and revising existing courses. Few existing traditional courses will contain all the elements of a good career major course.
