Vocational and Academic Teachers Work Together

R. H. Beck, G. H. Copa, V. H. Pease

This three-page reprint, originally published in the October 1991 issue of Educational Leadership, reports on a project in which teachers from vocational and academic areas interacted and reinforced each other. Two high schools were chosen, one in an urban area and one in a rural area. Each school worked with its own strengths. Teachers, administrators, and counselors developed interdisciplinary curricular interventions using a variety of theoretical approaches. These approaches included exchange classes, peer tutoring, correlated curriculum, and shared resources.
