I am getting ready to give a presentation to a group of teachers who are
interested in academic and vocational integration. I need some really good
group activities that will keep these people interested and still get the
important message of vocational and academic integration across. If anyone
out there has some suggestions or ideas that will work with a group of 70
middle and high school teachers (both academic and vocational) I would
appreciate them. I would particularly like to show integration with english,
math and science but would welcome other subjects also. I welcome
suggestions on resources that are available.
I'm a business education teacher, and so much of what I teach is rooted in academics. You might contact your local bank to see if t=
hey have any checking account practice sets to tie in the math part. I do plenty of paper-and-pencil activities with English. My v=
ocational program is legal-related, and I'm always making up crossword puzzles for the terms. I've also developed a terrific cooper=
ative learning activity on building a home.
