When Is Work a Learning Experience?
Hamilton, Mary Agnes; Hamilton, Stephen F.
Phi Delta Kappan, v78 n9 p682-89 May 1997
Simply placing young people in workplaces does not guarantee they will learn. This article discusses seven effectiveness principles (governing technical competence, breadth, personal/social competence, expectations and feedback, teaching roles, academic achievement, and career paths) and recommendations derived from a youth apprenticeship program in Binghamton, New York, high schools. Work-based learning is a powerful way to equalize opportunity. (MLH)
