BASICS: Bridging Vocational and Academic Skills. Implementation Guide.
Crowe, Michael R.; And Others
This implementation guide describes the philosophy of BASICS, a set of integrated materials developed to assist teachers, administrators, and counselors in bridging vocational and academic skills. It provides guidelines and strategies in workshop format for implementing the program in a school. The guide is organized around three topics. The rationale for BASICS presents the philosophy underlying the development of the material. Emphasis is given to the joint effort approach for strengthening students' basic skills. The rationale for BASICS implementation presents the background and issues involved in beginning the BASICS program and the various stages of implementation. Considerations include the leadership role required for a successful program and the various stages of implementation. The BASICS implementation section contains specific implementation procedures for the person who coordinates the BASICS program. The section contains a listing of BASICS products, a description of the products, and workshop outlines for inservice sessions for teachers and others in specific BASICS topics. Appendixes include a typology of standards, concerns voiced in California about vocational education, and three statements supporting joint vocational-academic effort. (YLB)
