Bouchillon, Wally S. Holmes
This document is designed to help local Florida communities and applied technology educators restructure their applied technologies programs to support development of the essential skills described in Florida's school-to-work initiatives. Among the topics discussed are the following: principles of Florida's School Improvement and Accountability Initiative; visioning (the importance of a local vision, applied technology vision statement); goal 3 standards as common processes and abilities for applied technology's content areas; applied technology strands, standards, and benchmarks; learning and teaching (new approaches, teaching to student diversity); curricular connections through instruction (models for curricular connections in instruction, organizational models for instructional integration, interdisciplinary units); assessment; the learning environment; professional development; and applied technology program improvement. Appendixes constituting approximately 60% of this document contain the following: Florida's applied technology vision, mission, and aim statements; Florida's School Improvement and Accountability Act goal 3 connections between student and teacher roles and standard outcomes; applied technology's "all aspects of the industry" developmental framework; applied technology's sample performance descriptions; instructional strategies for a 21st century applied technology classroom; English-as-a-second-language teaching strategies for all students; strategies for at-risk students to improve learning; and Florida state standard connections between applied technology and academic skills.
