THE PARTNERSHIP VOCATIONAL EDUCATION PROJECT, A NEW PROGRAM IN INDUSTRIAL-TECHNICAL EDUCATION.
MINELLI, ERNEST L.
THE PROPOSED PROGRAM TO IMPROVE INDUSTRIAL-TECHNICAL EDUCATION WILL FUNCTION ON THREE LEVELS--UNIVERSITY, COMMUNITY COLLEGE, AND HIGH SCHOOL. IN GRADES 9 AND 10, THE PROGRAM WILL CONSIST OF A STUDY OF AMERICAN INDUSTRY. IN GRADES 11 AND 12, THERE WILL BE A 2-YEAR SEQUENCE OF FOUR MAJOR COURSES IN ENGLISH, SCIENCE, MATHEMATICS, AND INDUSTRIAL-TECHNICAL EDUCATION. THE NATURAL RELATIONSHIPS OF EACH MAJOR SUBJECT TO THE OTHERS WILL BE DRAWN OUT AND USED AS CONSTANT REINFORCEMENT. THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO GIVE THE STUDENT PROFICIENCY IN HIS SELECTED FIELD OF TECHNOLOGY, AUGMENTED BY MATHEMATICS, BASIC SCIENCES, ENGLISH, AND TECHNOLOGICAL PRINCIPLES OF THE SELECTED FIELD. UNDER THE UNIVERSITY 5-YEAR PLAN, STUDENTS WILL HAVE MUCH MORE INTERNSHIP TEACHING EXPERIENCE THAN STUDENTS IN A TYPICAL INDUSTRIAL-TECHNICAL TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAM. IN ADDITION, ON-THE-JOB INDUSTRIAL INTERNSHIP EXPERIENCES WILL BE PROVIDED. A CRASH PROGRAM FOR INSERVICE TRAINING OF PRESENT TEACHERS WILL CONSIST OF SEMINARS, COURSES, AND INDUSTRIAL INTERNSHIP WHICH COULD LEAD TO A MASTER'S DEGREE. INCREASED ARTICULATION WITHIN THE SCHOOL HIERARCHY, IMPROVED TEACHING METHODS, COOPERATION WITH INDUSTRY, REDESIGN OF CURRICULUMS, AND THE INCLUSION OF MORE FLEXIBILITY FROM THE STUDENT'S VIEWPOINT ARE FACETS OF THIS NEW APPROACH.
