Building Linkages: Making Integrated Standards Work for Education and Industry.
Hudis, Paula M.
This report is designed to help state and local policymakers and practitioners understand the goals behind integrating academic and technical standards and the processes three national partnerships used to develop, test, and implement them in the context of curriculum reform. The first chapter of the report defines and describes integrated standards and how they can serve the needs of both education and industry. Chapters two, three, and four provide detailed descriptions of integrated standards activities in the three Building Linkages consortia (the Health Science Collaborative, the Manufacturing Linkages Consortium, and the Far West Project). The final chapter identifies the challenges and opportunities facing the consortia as they move forward with their work to expand the use of these standards in education and industry.
