Helping Teachers to Understand Their Roles in Integrating Vocational and Academic Education: A Practitioner's Guide

B. J. Schmidt, C. R. Finch, S. L. Faulkner

This guide is based on descriptions of vocational and academic teacher involvement across the integration process. The purpose is to help the educational practitioner understand more fully how teachers fulfill the roles required of them in the integration process. To do this, teachers' roles are viewed from four major integration themes: Faculty Cooperation, Curriculum Development, Instructional Strategies, and Administrative Practices and Procedures. For each of the themes, a number of subthemes address specific ways to help teachers understand their roles in integration. The themes and subthemes evolved from interviews completed at ten school sites in different states that have exemplary integration efforts underway.
