Harriman, Marilyn Williams
This manual, which accompanies a curriculum guide, is designed for users of Texas' 2 + 2 Tech Prep program, which trains individuals who followed the general track degree program in high school to provide high-quality care and education to young children. The manual explains the relation of the technical preparation (Tech Prep) education model to the human services field, and provides administrators, counselors, and instructors with a plan for implementing a curriculum in early childhood professions. An introductory chapter issues a call for a restructuring of education systems and gives a brief history of the implementation of a Tech Prep program at Central Texas College in Killeen, Texas. The following chapters discuss and provide materials related to: (1) curriculum development; (2) course outlines; (3) program implementation; (4) articulation agreements; (5) program promotion; and (6) program evaluation. Each chapter provides an explanation of the topic under discussion and offers suggestions for applying the information presented to the development of a Tech Prep program. Lists of 23 references and 6 resource organizations are appended. (SM)
