The Articulation of Occupational Education Programs between Secondary Schools and Community Colleges/Technical Institutes Project, 1 September 1974-31 Jul 1978. Final Report.
Woelfer, Carlyle
The purpose of this project was to develop a comprehensive model plan for the articulation of public high school vocational education programs with the occupational education programs of the community colleges/technical institutes in Duplin County, North Carolina. Such a plan would serve also as a guide for articulation efforts throughout the state. Project procedures were divided into two phases. Phase I included the orientation and preparation of project participants relative to articulation concepts; the finalizing of a plan of action; the development of policies and procedures; the organization of local area joint advisory and program committees that would be used in the development of the materials; the development of job task inventories and state pilot model instruction objectives guides; application of articulation procedures; and the development of an articulation policies and procedures guide. During phase II a set of three "State Pilot Model" instructional objective guides were developed in automotive mechanics, executive secretary/business education, and drafting. A "State Pilot Model" articulation policies and procedures guide was also developed. For those programs commonly taught by numerous institutions throughout the state, it was concluded that a better quality articulated vocational/occupational education program can be developed with less cost and effort by a joint state occupational advisory and program committee than can be done at the local level. (Also available are a Policies and Procedures Guide [CE 019 108] and Instructional Objectives Guides [CE 019 109-111].) (JH)
