Abstract

The integration of vocational and academic classes is often recognized as an effective method to motivate students and involve them in career preparation. This is also a goal of the dropout prevention efforts of many school districts. In Baker County, Florida, as in other districts, teacher participation in integrative efforts is recognized as a crucial factor. This project examines curricula and instructional and leadership practices that led to the successful implementation of academic and vocational integration in a Florida middle school. The resultant success and modus operandi may be used as a model for encouraging faculty involvement in interdisciplinary curriculum development.
