State Univ. of New York, Albany. Two Year Coll. Development Center.
This guide is a compendium of activities for use with students in grades K-12 and adults that clearly depict how school-to-work concepts (including applied learning, career education, and work-based experiences) translate into classroom practice to support the New York State Learning Standards. The guide begins with an introduction that explains how educational practices were selected for inclusion in the guide. Presented next are the New York State Learning Standards for the following subject areas: English; the arts; health, physical education and family and consumer science; career development and occupational studies; languages other than English; mathematics, science, and technology; and social studies. Learning standards matrices are provided that detail the New York State Learning Standards addressed by each best practice. The remaining four sections contain descriptions of a total of 66 school-based, work-based, and connecting activities. Of those activities, 18 are intended for elementary school students, 14 are intended for middle school students, 30 are intended for high school students, and 4 are intended for adults. Also included is an index referencing all activities included in the "New York State School-to-Work Best Practice Guide" on the World Wide Web. (MN)
