The Tech Prep Handbook: Essential Documents To Promte Effective Tech Prep Policies and Practices.
Hensley, Oliver D., Ed.; And Others
Developed during a project to document and analyze the tech prep initiative in Texas, this handbook contains exemplary documents associated with the model programs in the state. This second edition of the handbook organizes documents in sections (sections A, C, D, and G) that correspond to the major impact sectors identified during the research project: (1) tech prep consortia; (2) colleges and universities; (3) disciplinary bodies; (4) government; and (5) industry and business. Document types include consortia agreements, competency lists, courses of study, flowcharts, program descriptions, summaries of legislation, articulation guides, and publicity flyers. Other sections (B, E, F, and H-K) are blank. Documents on the following topics are planned to be added to these sections at a later date; independent school districts; exemplars, innovators, and emerging efforts; students; home and public; other initiatives; and economic development. Section V is a glossary defining 91 terms. (KC)
