Wojciechowski, William A.; Hayes, Robert E., "CCAF: A Lesson in Space Age Curriculum Development.", Community Coll. of the Air Force, Randolph AFB, TX


Abstract: The Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) integrated Air Force technical education with civilian related education, resulting in 77 Career Education Certificate programs. CCAF plots the career education of Air Force enlisted personnel, using service instruction as a core and guidelines established by the U.S. Office of Education and other agencies for two-year occupationally oriented, associate level programs. Certificate programs require a 64-semester-hour minimum, which includes at least 24 semester hours of technical education related to an individual''s Air Force occupation, 25 semester hours of related education designed for personal enrichment and to enhance supervisory skills, and 6 semester hours of military management instruction. The related education is obtained primarily from accredited institutions during off-duty time. After the initial development of the 77 career patterns, the curricula were reviewed against specified criteria, modifications were made, and advisory panels were identified for each of the career patterns. Subsequent to an annual review by the advisory panels, career patterns are modified by Career Division analysts as necessary, approved by the Policy Council, and are incorporated into the CCAF catalog for distribution. The catalog provides all pertinent information regarding the CCAF program, including the awarding of the Career Education Certificate. Follow-up studies are conducted to determine the effectiveness of the program in preparing the personnel for the roles of technician and supervisor, as well as to provide for continuous CCAF program development. A flow chart is provided of the educational programs. (DB)


Hayes, Robert E., "A SUPER Model for Teaching Physics.", Physics Teacher, v23 n5 p273-76 May 1985


Abstract: Compares and contrasts high school physics philosophies, curricula, and textbooks of early 1900s to present, indicating that current textbooks are teacher and subject-oriented, lack examples of daily life, and are highly mathematical and too abstract. Suggestions for helping students experience success and improve self-esteem (which leads to increased enrollments) are given.
