Theorem 3 - Vocational Education Should Provide...
We have spent a couple of weeks talking about the history of CTE and we are going to blog about some of Prosser's Theorems this semester. I have chosen one of the 16 for us to discuss this week. Do you agree or disagree with theorem 3 and why? You could cite examples from your experience if you like. Here is theorem 3, "Vocational education should provide students with thinking habits - technical knowledge and scientific problem solving skills - and the manipulative skills required in the occupation itself." I agree with Prosser's theorem number 3. I believe that vocational education should provide students with thinking habits, technical knowledge ans scientific problem solving skills. Certain career fields require you to think along a certain path to be able to understand and "fix" a presented problem. For instance, in the information technology (IT) field, depending upon the specialty, problems are presented and a certain way off thinking is required to fix that particular problem. Technical knowledge is a board category that can means knowledge involving hands on application. Most vocational fields require some sort of certificate to have a career in that field. In order to gain that particular certificate, technical knowledge must to obtained. All vocational education fields require scientific problem solving skills. A problem is presented, therefore that problem must be fixed.
