Strengthening Basic Skills through an Integrated Middle School Curriculum. August 1988-June 1989.
Craven County Board of Education, New Bern, NC.
This curriculum is the result of a grant awarded to three North Carolina middle schools for the purpose of implementing the BASICS: Bridging Vocational and Academic Skills program that was developed at Ohio State University. The program correlates those competencies and skills considered important for learners by academic and career exploration teachers in the middle schools and identifies activities for their implementation. The first section of the guide is a matrix correlating five career exploration competencies and five employability skills with strategies in each of seven disciplines: math, science, social studies, communications, art/music, physical education, and guidance. Next, a series of matrices relates competencies in math, science, social studies, communications, and physical education to career exploration strategies. The last section takes selected competencies in each subject area and lists strategies, equipment and materials, estimated time, and instructions for the teacher for activities to integrate basic skills and career exploration.
