This document consists of a final report and practitioner's guide. The final report describes a project that studied successful integration efforts between academic and vocational education. Four secondary school and three community college programs were studied. Teachers and administrators were interviewed, classes were observed, and curriculum materials were collected. The results of the site visits and materials collected were synthesized into the handbook, which can be used for resource planning or reference. The final report contains the following sections: background; rationale; major accomplishments and significant findings; final product abstract; evaluation and impact; human resources; and nine appendices. The appendices are as follows: program nomination form and cover letter; secondary administrator interview guide; college administrator interview guide; secondary teacher interview guide; college instructor interview guide; classroom observation guide; site descriptions; 32 resource bibliographies; and an article on research and leadership. The practitioner's guide contains the following sections: What is integration? Why integrate? How is integration structured? How is integrated instruction planned? How is integrated instruction delivered? How is integrated instruction evaluated? What outcomes have been realized from integrated instruction? and What is the next step? Twenty-four references, site descriptions, and 33 additional resources are included. (NLA)
