Development of Junior/Community College Curricula for Future Teachers of Industrial Education. Final Report.
Feirer, John L.; Lindbeck, John R.
This report discusses the third year effort of a federally funded program to study the development and implementation of a variety of cooperative arrangements between junior colleges and senior institutions regarding industrial teacher preparation. Three major activities were completed in the first two years of the program: (1) the study of present technical offerings in junior colleges in six selected states; (2) a survey of problems of articulation between junior colleges and senior institutions; and (3) a review of all research relating to technical programs in junior colleges and industrial teacher preparation programs. The principal aims of the third year were: (1) survey 29 additional states not previously covered to determine guideline bulletin value for giving industrial teacher education programs direction; (2) establish four to six pilot centers in which guideline recommendations would be implemented; (3) develop a junior college counselor handbook; (4) develop a model industrial education transfer guide for junior college students; (5) publicize a guideline bulletin titled, "Partners in Industrial Technical Teacher Education;" and (6) stimulate interest in developing occupational education master plans. Included as appendices are copies of the "Handbook" and "Guide." (AL)
