Tech-Prep Articulation: Is This an Answer for the Forgotten Half?
Doty, Charles R.
This paper explores why comprehensive high schools should consider implementing tech prep and what they need to know about tech prep programs. It first presents 14 principles of high school-community college articulation (the basis for tech prep). Following these principles, the paper explores the history of tech prep, definitions by Congress, and definitions by others. It then outlines some tech prep models, lists their components, and describes a tech prep example. A discussion of what Congress wants and the potential meaning of the tech prep articulation model for education follows. Finally, the following resources for implementing tech prep are listed: three publications on apprenticeship; names and addresses for two clearinghouses, five curriculum centers, one database, and six guidance sources; four guides; three newsletters; four sources for resources for special education; one publication on technology; and one book on workplace basics. Contains 14 references. (KC)
