The primary purpose of the Curriculum Revitalization Project was to provide assistance to Illinois vocational educators, administrators, regional administrators, and regional delivery system directors in strengthening vocational programs. Ten major accomplishments were achieved: (1) seven regional instructional materials coordinators (IMCs) were employed; (2) professional development activities were provided to the IMCs; (3) a regional communication network was established; (4) three curriculum areas were emphasized (integration of applied academics, articulated K-14 vocational programs, and Tech-Prep programs); (5) IMCs responded to over 3,000 curriculum and instructional materials requests; (6) inservice workshops were presented; (7) personal contacts were made with vocational educators, administrators, Regional Delivery Systems, and community colleges; (8) working relationships with other state agencies, projects, and events were established; (9) public awareness was developed through brochures, a workshop portfolio, a traveling exhibit, and other public relations activities; and (10) a field test of a system of integrating task lists was conducted by Southern Illinois University (Carbondale). The bulk of this document consists of eight appendices: (1) project approval, budget, and revisions; (2) Region III position announcement materials; (3) integration workshop; (4) workshop transparency master and publicity; (5) display delivery; (6) project report materials; (7) region summaries; and (8) publicity.
