Keown-Bomar, Julie; And Others
This document contains a brief report and project materials from the Tech Prep Initiative, which forged a partnership of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, the Wisconsin Technical College System, and the University of Wisconsin System to provide an articulated avenue of study that moves a student through high school and into a technical college to an associate degree. The report describes how the Tech Prep/School-to-Work Leadership Group and the Tech Prep State Management Team initiated an Integrated and Applied Curricula Development Project for grades 11-14 through the University of Wisconsin-Stout. It describes second-year project activities, including provision of information, technical assistance, and workshops to help expand team members' competency in integrated and applied curriculum development, alternative instructional techniques, and authentic assessment. Teacher educators and administrators were included and were encouraged to become more involved in these initiatives. Databases were created to include cadre members, sample tasks, curriculum materials, and assessment information. This report includes the workshop instructional materials, examples of the curriculum developed, questionnaires, quizzes, and workshop assessment instruments. (KC)
