Building Basic Skills: Models for Implementation. Special Publications Series No. 41.
Campbell-Thrane, Lucille; And Others
This report, the third in a series of works dealing with improving vocational students' basic skill levels, uses a case study approach to examine the process at the local district level of selecting, planning, and implementing a basic skill delivery model. Presented first are an introductory discussion of the background and purpose of the report and an overview of the instructional delivery models described in the report. The case study of one district's implementation of a basic skills development model addresses the following topics: the population to be served by the model; the problem of basic skills deficiencies in vocational students' program planning and problem solving; program selection and development; a scenario for the integrated model of instruction (a model involving infusing basic skills instruction into vocational classes); a scenario for the nonintegrated model (a model calling for conducting basic skills instruction in a classroom setting separate from vocational training); and a scenario for the combination model (a blend of elements of the integrated and nonintegrated models). Concluding the report is a checklist for guiding decisions on selecting a basic skills model. A list of vocational teacher competencies necessary to assist students in improving their basic skills and a list of references and suggested readings are appended. (MN)
