Rx Articulation. A Guidebook to Successful Curriculum Articulation.
This procedural guide is designed for program operators and service providers who are cognizant of the potential advantages of articulation and are interested in beginning or expanding articulation efforts. The guide's first section explains the various forms of articulation and reviews briefly benefits and barriers. Other sections introduce the importance of formal agreements and plans and deal with planning processes, financial considerations, and strategies for marketing. The guide covers in some detail the specific development of an articulated program, including the process of meshing competencies and courses, implementing the program, and suggestions for evaluation. The final section recommends specific duties for all involved personnel, from instructors and counselors to deans and superintendent designees. Appendixes include an articulation agreement form, contacts for three flagship articulation programs for further assistance, a form for an articulation course competency analysis, an articulation plan form, and list of seven references.
