A Handbook for Articulating High School and Community College Career Programs.
Opachinch, Cheryl A.; Linksz, James J.
This handbook explains the procedures and rationale for the study of articulation between high school and community college career programs. After citing a thumbnail history of articulation practices and laws, the goals and methodology of creating an articulation survey are explained. The survey target group, questionnaire format, questions to be asked, administration, tabulation, and reporting are examined. An articulation workshop for people from different educational levels within the same program area is suggested as the easiest and most productive means to encourage better interactive and communicative relationships. Guidelines are presented for the workshop's preparation, program, objectives, summary, follow-up, and leadership. Suggestions are made for improving each of the three principal aspects of the articulation program: the information dimension, the communication dimension, and the interaction dimension. Appendices include the survey questionnaires, suggested tabular format, an articulation seminar program, proposed articulation seminar objectives, and a synthesis of the survey results. (GME)
