Career Academy Course Sequences.
Markham, Thom; Lenz, Robert
This career academy course sequence guide is designed to give teachers a quick overview of the course sequences of well-known career academy and career pathway programs from across the country. The guide presents a variety of sample course sequences for the following academy themes: (1) arts and communication; (2) business and finance; (3) computers and information technology; (4) engineering, manufacturing, and construction; (5) environmental science, natural resources, and agriculture; (6) health and biosciences; and (7) tourism and hospitality. In addition to course sequences for each academy theme, the guide also offers examples of specific course descriptions related to each theme. The course descriptions contain a detailed syllabus for each course plus recommended texts and sources of additional information. Because the goal of career academies is to simultaneously prepare students for college and careers, all the course descriptions provided only describe courses that meet college admission standards. The guide's introduction lists four planning guides that can be consulted as start-up or planning guides along with the names, World Wide Web addresses, and brief overviews of the programs offered by seven key sources of career academy-related information and/or providers of career academy programs that were consulted in compiling the guide.
