Successful Strategies: Teaching and Learning in Arizona Schools.
Arizona State Dept. of Education, Phoenix.
This book provides 35 profiles that are a small sampling of the successful strategies, environments, and activities taking place within the school-to-work/vocational-technical education arena in Arizona. The profiles describe a variety of successful strategies. They include many types of activities serving a number of populations. They also reflect geographical diversity. Schools from metropolitan, rural, and urban areas are represented. In addition, most profiles demonstrate ways to combine funds and leverage resources. The profiles demonstrate community involvement and business partnerships. To demonstrate the importance of addressing strategies at all grade levels, profiles are included from elementary, middle and junior high schools, high schools, and institutions of higher learning. Newly created charter schools addressing the school to work principles in their curriculum are included. Each summary provides the goal of the project or program, a description of the program, outcomes, things to consider when replicating this strategy in one's own school, contact information, and a listing of the funding sources involved. Key words appear at the top right-hand corner of each page. The template in the lower right corner of each profile illustrates the level(s) of education involved, as well as efforts to collaborate with other education and business resources in this particular activity. A glossary includes definitions of key words and educational terminology. (YLB)
