Hands and Minds: Redefining Success in Vocational Technical Education.
Education Writers Association, Washington, DC.
This report describes four programs identified as fitting the criteria of a program that bridges the worlds of learning, earning, and adulthood for all students. "Overview: Making School Work for All Students" (Linda Chion-Kenney) provides background and describes criteria to be met by schools serving needs of vocational students. "Oakland's Health and Bioscience Academy: Heavy on Science and Experience for 'Disenchanted' Students" (Jacqueline Cutler) discusses a school within a school that recruits economically and educationally impoverished students. "New Castle County, Delaware: Senior Projects Provide Anchor for Adulthood" (Vyola Willson) describes a school that requires ninth graders to begin a senior project to which coursework and shopwork are tied throughout the school years. "Rockbridge County, Virginia: Weaving together Academics and Work" (Neal Thompson) focuses on a small rural school that has eliminated the general education track and ability grouping. "Rindge School of Technical Arts in Cambridge, Massachusetts: Using the Community to Develop Student Talents" (Catherine Foster) describes a school within a school that personalizes instruction for students at risk of getting lost in a large urban high school and connects learning to the world at large. Other contents include descriptions of seven other programs, questions asked during site visits, a list of sources and materials, and a list of 23 selected materials. (YLB)
