Strengthening the Industry-Education Alliance in History and Checklist for Industry-Education Alliances in History.
National Association for Industry - Education Cooperation, Buffalo, NY.; National Center for the Study of History, Cornish, ME.
The first part of this document describes how industry-education alliances promote collaboration between representatives of education and industry (business, labor, agriculture, the professions, and government). Alliances mobilize resources for schooling, enable educational systems to respond effectively to changes in the workplace, improve communications, and strengthen educational programs at all levels. Industry-education alliances in history bring a specific focus to this cooperation by fostering the study of history. Industry-education alliances focus on four areas of advice to teachers: staff development, curriculum development, instruction, and assessment. A flowchart showing industry support is included. General suggestions for business responses in the four areas of advice are listed. In the second part a checklist is described as a preliminary guide for industry-education alliances in history. It has two purposes: to identify advice needed by educators and to confirm that appropriate counsel is, in fact, available from cooperating industries. Sections A and B collect general information and they are followed by a checklist of possible topics for discussion for which industry advice may be available. (YLB)
