Connecticut State Board of Education, Hartford.
This compendium provides information concerning promising methods and techniques in vocational and adult education in Connecticut during the 1984-85 school year. It is targeted at educators who wish to improve their own vocational and adult education programs and services. Practices described in the document were selected by a panel of educators based on the following criteria: the practice meets an identified need for a specific problem or target population; indicators suggest that success is measurable; adoption or adaption by others is possible; resources required are practical; and the practice has been in operation for at least one year. Programs are presented in alphabetical order by title. Each one-page program description lists descriptors, target audience, major objectives, overview of the program, indicators of success, resources needed, and a contact person. The guide is indexed by vocational education subject areas and by areas of focus. The following 13 programs are described: accelerated secretarial science certificate program, adopt-a-school program, basic and trade-specific computer literacy, Bloomfield school/business collaborative, business office skills development, career awareness and related employment, developing husbandry skills through small animal learning centers, electronic assembly training, graduation requirements, health occupations--nursing assistant, microcomputers in accounting, microcomputer keyboarding for middle/junior high school students, and occupational English as a second language.
