Business, Marketing and Management Teacher Education Initiative. Final Report.
Haynes, Thomas S.; And Others
Three objectives of an Illinois project were as follows: (1) develop models for business, marketing, and management teacher education; (2) develop linkages between business and educational agency personnel; and (3) develop Tech Prep programs that lead to associate degrees and further education. During the project, staff at Illinois State University helped more than 200 local education agency personnel and business leaders in 3 Illinois regions to develop the Tech Prep programs that would improve the effectiveness of technical education by promoting articulated courses of study that meet industry standards. They also collected and reviewed data about teacher preparation programs, proposed curriculum changes, developed a resource list, and delivered inservice workshops concerning Tech Prep, the nature of the work force, and educational change. Connections with business education and business leaders were fostered through the writing and distribution of more than 4,500 copies of a newsletter and the formation of business and professional advisory committees. (Twenty-two appendixes, which make up most of the document, include the following: a teacher education program matrix, a status report on business teacher education programs and proposals for change, the newsletter developed by the project, advisory committee membership lists, articulation agreements, materials from meetings and workshops, educational articulation materials, and Tech Prep curriculum materials from the three sites.)
