Tech Prep Indiana Training Manual.
Purdue Univ., Lafayette, IN.
This manual is designed as a training tool for individuals who are implementing tech prep in Indiana. It is divided into three major divisions. Division I contains general information about tech prep and issues related to its implementation. Its nine chapters summarize relevant legislation, address leadership concerns, explain curriculum development, describe instructional strategies, make suggestions for developing articulation agreements between secondary and postsecondary institutions, discuss issues that may impede implementation, discuss other school reform, and describe program evaluation. Division II contains suggestions for preservice teacher educators and instructional units in English/language arts, mathematics, science, and technology to illustrate the applied academics approach that characterizes tech prep. An interdisciplinary module on bar coding is included that contains abbreviated lesson plans (design briefs) dealing with technology, language arts, mathematics, and science. Division III contains suggestions and materials for conducting inservice workshops for teachers who will be implementing tech prep. Trainer and trainee material are provided for three staff development workshops on curriculum development, identifying tech prep content, and developing tech prep instructional materials. Appendixes include a list of curriculum materials for applied academics, an annotated listing of materials available from the National Tech Prep Clearinghouse, and a list of 125 references. (YLB)
