Sequence Curriculum: High School to College. Middlesex Community College/Haddam-Killingworth High School. Final Report.
Middlesex Community Coll., Middletown, CT.
Through a collaborative effort between Middlesex Community College (MxCC) and Haddam-Killingworth High School (HKHS), students taking specific high school courses in television production, broadcast journalism, electronics, and photography are granted college credit by MxCC upon admission to the college's Broadcast Communication Program. The development of this articulated program involved the following activities: (1) meetings between HKHS and MxCC representatives to develop a competency-based curriculum, discuss the design and content of the courses, agree upon learning objectives, methods of matriculation, use of equipment, awarding of credit, and promotion of the program to nontraditional groups, and determine requisite skill levels for the television production courses; (2) the development of curriculum criteria and evaluation measures; and (3) the distribution of 500 brochures explaining the skill mastery requirements for college credit to students enrolled in HKHS's television program and interested MxCC students. Descriptions, course outlines, syllabi, and instructor guidelines for the articulated courses are appended to the project report along with budgetary information, the promotional brochure, and an application form.
