Wisconsin Integrated and Applied Curricula Project Year Three: 1995-1996. Final Report.
Wisconsin Univ. - Stout, Menomonie. Center for Vocational, Technical and Adult Education.
This report describes the third year of Wisconsin's Integrated and Applied Curricula project. The mission was to provide information, technical assistance, and a summer conference to help expand team members' competencies in developing integrated and applied curricula, training of high school and technical college educators. The cadre of teachers could then serve as facilitators. The summer conference attended by 130 people was centered around three main themes: work-based learning, connecting school-to-work, and school-based learning. The curriculum developed by each team was sent to participating school teams. Evaluations indicated the following: 72 percent of participants liked the organization and structure of the conference, 69 percent indicated the conference was excellent or very good at helping them attain their goals, and 89 percent would like to attend again next year. Survey results indicated 96.3 percent of respondents changed their curriculum as a result of activities. The seven-page report is followed by these appendixes: conference materials, integrated and applied curricula resource list, and examples of resource center handouts, curricula projects from the conference, conference evaluation results, integrated and applied curricula projects' assessment--3-year evaluation results, and project correspondence.
