Adult Educator in the Workplace: A School-to-Work Initiative. Final Report.
Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit 16, Lewisburg, PA.
This document consists of a brief report and materials from a project that offered Pennsylvania adult education instructors internships in selected industries through the Educator in the Workplace initiative. The purpose of the project was to enhance the processes of curriculum, planning, and staff development with an intensive workplace initiative and start to infuse part-time staff with workplace competency needs. The report describes how three adult education staff members were assigned to jobs in industry for several weeks in the summer of 1997. Following their experiences, the staff revised and wrote curricula, held meetings, conducted inservice education for teachers, and worked to implement changes in the classroom. The bulk of the document consists of the following appendixes: educators' daily journals of their workplace experience; information on Center for Occupational Research and Development curriculum materials; calculator math lesson plan; licensed practical nurse lesson plan; writing assignments; and school-to-work partnership contacts.)
