Teacher Development Program for ATP 2000. Project Report.
Sutphin, Dean; And Others
Agri Tech Prep 2000 (ATP 2000) is a 4-year tech prep program linking high school and postsecondary curricula designed to prepare New York students for careers in agriculture or acceptance into a college program in agriculture. Because teacher development was designated an integral project component for fiscal year 1991-1992, a weeklong teacher development program was conducted in cooperation with the State University of New York in summer 1992. The primary focus of the inservice program was on the first phase of ATP 2000, and its primary objectives were as follows: demonstrate instructional materials and methods of instruction, foster discussion about issues related to secondary-postsecondary articulation of agricultural instruction, and establish professional dialogue between agriculture and academic core teachers and between teachers and project administrators. Eleven schools sent one or more representatives to the inservice program. Participants also received laboratory teaching kits/instructional materials, lesson plans, materials on compliance and arrangement for ATP 2000, and evaluation instruments. Project feedback obtained from written questionnaires and discussions was quite favorable. (Appendixes constituting two-thirds of the document include the inservice and course program, course materials, presenter evaluations, the inservice evaluation form and summarized findings, and the Strong Interest Inventory evaluation.)
