Practices in Work-Based Learning.
New Hampshire State Dept. of Education, Concord.
This guide is a tool to assist educators in the development of high-quality work-based learning sites in New Hampshire as part of the state's school-to-work program. The guide is divided into two sections. The first section, Common Elements of Work-Based Learning, provides information and guidelines for addressing program design issues for all varieties of work-based learning strategies. This section includes the following topics: roles of key players; program planning suggestions; providing guidance and training for staff; recruiting, orienting, and supporting business and community partners; orienting and supporting students; orienting and supporting parents; connecting work and learning; and determining what is working. The second section, Strategies for Five Work-Based Learning Experiences, provides the essential elements of five different work-based learning strategies: industry and community tours, job shadows, service-learning, internships, and registered youth apprenticeships. Except for the registered youth apprenticeship that defines specific guidelines required by the state, each strategy includes the following information: definition of the particular work-based learning strategy; description of the purpose; roles of key players; description of planning tasks specifically related to the strategy; state of New Hampshire regulations; examples for connecting work and learning in the classroom; and an "in-practice" example drawn from the experiences of New Hampshire schools. Appendixes contain the following: lists of national, state, regional, and local work-based learning resources; state health, safety, and liability information; and a glossary. (KC)
