STUDY AND DEVELOPMENT OF SHOP-CENTERED TEAM TEACHING FOR POTENTIAL HIGH SCHOOL DROP-OUTS.
ODELL, WILLIAM R.
A RATIONALE AND PROCEDURE FOR THE EFFECTIVE VOCATIONAL EDUCATION OF LOW ACHIEVING HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WAS DEVELOPED FROM AN ANALYSIS OF 13 HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAMS IN 10 SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA SCHOOL SYSTEMS WHERE THE RICHMOND PRE-ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM WAS UNDER OPERATION. EXPERIMENTAL EFFORTS WERE MADE TO ESTABLISH SHOP-CENTERED TEAM TEACHING PROGRAMS IN THE THREE HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN SANTA CRUZ COUNTY, CALIFORNIA, WITH PARTIAL PROGRAMING AT CABRILLO JUNIOR COLLEGE. UNDERACHIEVING ELEVENTH AND TWELFTH GRADE PUPILS WITH GOOD POTENTIAL AND AN INTEREST IN SCIENCE WERE TAUGHT ON A HALF-DAY SCHEDULE BY A TEAM OF TEACHERS REPRESENTING SCIENCE, MATH, ENGLISH, AND SHOP. THE FINAL REPORT INCLUDES A DESCRIPTIVE SUMMARIZATION OF CONCLUSIONS ABOUT PROBLEMS AND PROCEDURES RELATED TO THE OPERATION, EMPHASIZING THAT IT WAS DESIGNED FOR SPECIAL GROUPS OF PUPILS, PARTICULARLY FOR THOSE NOT WELL SERVED BY THE EXISTING ACADEMIC PROGRAM. AN INFORMAL APPRAISAL OF THE PROGRAM INDICATES THAT IT HAS BEEN A SUCCESS WITH ALL STUDENTS IN SOME AREAS AND WITH SOME STUDENTS IN ALL AREAS. (JK)
