This articulation guide is one in a series of products emerging from Project MAVE (Model for Articulated Vocational Education). Included in the introductory section are a diagram of the four essential elements for articulation, background to the development of the guide, an explanation of why articulation is needed, a brief overview of the guide, an articulation process model chart, the Illinois Career Education Model, and terms and definitions. Discussed next are various strategies for building a cooperative climate, including formation and use of an articulation roundtable, development of 1- and 5-year articulation plans, and establishment of a joint advisory council. Various methods for expanding communication among staff are covered. Among these are a guest teacher and visit-exchange program, a joint departmental and divisional meeting, and a joint inservice or institute day. The next section is devoted to developing sequenced K-14 programs. Presented next are guidelines for coordinating services, a K-14 student planning guide, and steps for designing and utilizing student profile cards. Appendixes to the guide contain a list of factors leading to good articulation, a career and vocational education needs assessment questionnaire, an outline of the benefits derived from implementing articulation activities, and a suggested articulation timetable.
