Tech-Prep for the '90s. Final Report.
John A. Logan Coll., Carterville, IL.
A project successfully infused tech prep into the vocational-technical programs of 10 of the 11 high schools in the John A. Logan College district in Illinois. All participating schools revised course syllabi for a portion of their academic classes indicating the use of applied materials. The Principles of Technology class was offered successfully in three schools. Nine secondary schools had tech prep teams that worked to determine methods of using tech prep principles and to interest other teachers in using tech prep materials. One board of control approved tech prep entrance requirements. Secondary and postsecondary academic and vocational teachers attended joint inservice activities and worked together in joint planning for the infusion of tech prep. Development of an implementation plan progressed. (Extensive appendixes contain the following: the Williamson County Regional Vocational System programs and classes brochure; tech prep implementation plans for the college and 10 high schools; and tech prep syllabi from the vocational-technical programs in the 10 high schools that indicate the incorporation of basic skills into vocational classes.)
