Integrated Shop Program Third Year Evaluation. Final Report.
Loveless, Austin G.
The Integrated Shop Program was initiated to improve occupational programs in Utah's small high schools so that the students in those schools would be better prepared to enter the job market or continue their education. Operating on a pilot basis for three years, the program has now extended its base from seven high schools to 19 high schools and two junior high schools. Courses taught are: (1) drafting, (2) woodwork and building construction, (3) metal fabrication, and (4) power mechanics. Criteria by which the courses were selected include: (1) the nature of the skills taught in the courses, (2) economic feasibility (the basic equipment necessary for teaching the courses was already in the schools), and (3) student interest.
