Tech-Prep: Doing with Understanding. July 1, 1990-June 30, 1991. Final Report.
Joliet Junior Coll., IL.
A 1-year project was conducted to develop an awareness of the tech prep model of articulation wherein high school students prepare for technical careers through a 2 + 2 or 2 + 4 program of high school and advanced enrollment in technical or community colleges. During the program, the following was accomplished: (1) administrative support was secured for tech prep at both the secondary and postsecondary levels; (2) key business leaders who were interested in the program were involved; (3) a student attraction team was formed and helped to draft a comprehensive marketing program for tech prep; (4) a committee of experts was convened to help identify the essential elements of a tech prep program for the region; (5) a tech prep overview was given to area teachers likely to be involved with the program; and (6) schedules for developing tech prep curricula in various subject fields were prepared. (The report includes lists of paid participants and their roles on various committees, lists of unpaid participants and their affiliations, a discussion of problems in the project, publicity materials, minutes of the meetings of the student attraction team, an inservice staff development plan, and an equity/access student attraction plan.)
