Preparing Teachers To Successfully Integrate Vocational and Academic Education: A Case Study Approach.
Schmidt, B. June; And Others
This document, which is designed to prepare teachers and administrators to integrate vocational and academic education successfully, contains 46 case studies illustrating the roles teachers must assume to facilitate such integration. The cases, which have been drawn from a 1992 study titled "Teachers' Roles in the Integration of Vocational and Academic Education" (B. June Schmidt et al.), are grouped by four functional themes: cooperative efforts; curriculum strategies; instructional strategies; and administrative practices and procedures. Also included are an introductory discussion of the importance of integrating vocational and academic education, a list of purposes the cases can serve, and guidelines for selecting appropriate cases and managing the instructional setting. The following are among the titles of the case studies included: "Teachers Teaching Students"; "Coordination Gone Awry"; "The Applied Approach Makes All the Difference"; "Sharing with Parents"; "Teaming to Develop a Textbook"; "Hands-On Experience Versus Class Attendance"; "Making Math More Relevant"; "The Student Does the Teaching"; "Letter Writing in the Auto Mechanics Lab"; "The Community Can Be a Valuable Resource"; "Dealing with the Skeptics"; "Team Teaching"; and "Organizing for Teacher Cooperation." Appended are a 12-item bibliography and a chart detailing the type of school(s), teaching areas, and cooperative efforts illustrated in each case study. (MN)
