Stewart, Betsy; And Others
A project was undertaken at Cerritos College (CC) to establish a statewide model for the development of articulated trade and industry curriculum materials and methods that would allow students to move from the secondary to the college level without loss of time or resources. Six subject areas were chosen: auto body, automotive, drafting, electronics, machine tool, and plastics. The project involved: (1) a statewide poll of 107 California community colleges, 15% of which had articulation agreements in at least one trade and industrial area; (2) the participation of four school districts, the Cerritos Community College District, and four universities; (3) the development of steering and advisory committees and the involvement of 72 full-time instructors in the 6 subject areas; (4) a series of meetings to compare courses and materials and to develop articulated curricula; (5) the creation of an articulation package listing programs and instructors; (6) the establishment of an articulation policy at CC, articulation agreements with other institutions, and a certification process for students completing articulated courses; (7) two statewide workshops to demonstrate the project; and (8) the development of computerized listings of articulated courses in the six subject areas. The project resulted in articulation agreements in all six subject areas. Appendices include survey results, committee meeting minutes, and enrollment projections. (HB)
