Summary

To prepare school administrators to exert more effective leadership in conceptualizing, analyzing, organizing, and administering public school vocational and technical programs, simulated materials were developed in the form of three "in-baskets" which consecutively communicate an awareness of the need of a more comprehensive program, provide knowledge about occupational preparation, and require application of the awareness and knowledge gained. The materials were designed to utilize the setting of the simulated community and school district described in VT 005 411. The simulated materials were tested by 48 students in an 8-week block program in a graduate course for administrators and in a 5-day workshop. The use of simulated materials was effective in increasing knowledge and producing favorable attitudes. Guidelines for using simulation suggest clearly that the instructor (1) identify objectives, (2) become thoroughly familiar with the materials, (3) use small groups to facilitate student interaction, (4) encourage active participation of all students, (5) permit the student freedom to explore alternatives, (6) phrase questions to stimulate discussion, (7) use role playing, (8) provide immediate and meaningful followup activities which require the student to face the problem and confront the consequences of a dicision, (9) allow adequate time to consider materials, and (10) be aware that simulation is not a panacea.
