Integrating Academic and Vocational Education and Thinking Skills: An Alaskan Model.
Bartman, Donna; And Others
Fifty-three secondary educators in six Alaskan school districts participated in a Carl Perkins grant project to integrate academic and vocational education and thinking skills. The first year of the project combined onsite and distance delivered instruction on the development of interdisciplinary units and integration models. An electronic college linked project teachers and National Center for Research in Vocational Education researchers via Bitnet. During Fiscal Year 1993, project teachers were to field test 21 4-week interdisciplinary units developed by teams of academic and vocational educators in vocational classrooms and participate in a one-graduate-credit course taught via LiveNet (one-way video, two-way audio). (A concept outline that guided the educators in development of the interdisciplinary units is appended.) (YLB)
