Harrington, Lois G.
This document is designed to help vocational/tech prep and applied academics teachers plan and present their subject matter in a more integrated manner. The introduction presents the rationale for the ideabook. It is designed to help teachers modify their instructional program to more closely match the demands and realities of the real world. The document's four sections are: "About Vocational-Academic Integration" (the integration continuum and the infusion, linked, and multidisciplinary strategies); "Integration Ideas: Activities and Strategies" (teach thinking strategies; use authentic assessment tools such as portfolios and performance assessments; use rubrics; use periodicals; simulate the workplace; incorporate projects; use demonstrations and discovery; use planning tools that support integration; and devise joint plans with other teachers); "The Information Superhighway" (the Internet, e-mail, Usenet newsgroups; mailing lists; Internet access; mega-websites; and recommended websites); and "Curricular Resources for Applied Academics" (resource catalogs; resources for applied communications, applied mathematics and science, applied mathematics, and applied science; and contact information). Concluding the document are sample pages from the Ohio Department of Education's Occupational Competency Analysis Profile. Three annotated bibliographies included in the document contain a total of 46 print resources and 18 website addresses. (MN)
