Becker, Richard A.
This document is intended to give Wisconsin teachers and administrators the background knowledge to understand the nuances of the various work-based learning (WBL) programs and determine whether they want to develop one or more new WBL programs in their district or enhance or otherwise customize existing WBL programs. Each of the first 11 chapters discusses one of the following types of programs: service learning; job shadowing; internships; employability skills certificate programs; cooperative education skill standards certificate programs; cooperative education; youth apprenticeships; work experience programs; supervised agricultural experience programs; school-based enterprises; and assistant child care teacher programs. Each of these chapters begins with an introduction that explains the objectives of the specific type of program, its main components, and trends in its development and ends with lists of student, supervising teacher, and employer roles and responsibilities. Chapter 12 discusses the process of establishing business and education partnerships. Specific topics covered in Chapter 12 are as follows: benefits of partnerships to the business and industry sector; key questions in recruiting business and industry; and the roles of schools and employers in establishing business and education partnerships. The following items are appended: considerations and expectations for special populations enrolled in WBL programs; the Wisconsin Child Labor Laws Administrative Rule; and a list of 32 resources.
