A Guide for Enhancing Cooperation between Vocational and Academic Teachers. The Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory Program Report.
Owens, Thomas R.
This guide is designed to help school administrators, teachers, and school board members see the benefits of cooperation between vocational and academic teachers. It also looks at the barriers, examines models for cooperation, and describes exemplary practices. The guide considers the impact of cooperation in the work environment and provides a framework for teacher cooperation. Barriers to cooperation and principles to enhance cooperation are listed. Successful illustrative practices for integrating academic and vocational education are grouped into five categories: those occurring (1) within a single class, (2) between two classes, (3) across a school, (4) beyond the school, and (5) at the state level. Guidelines are also suggested for the support roles to be played by principals, central office staff, the state department of education, community employers, and teacher training institutes. Summaries of two guides for teacher cooperation and an annotated bibliography are appended. (YLB)
