Strengthening STEM and Computer Science Outcomes for Tennessee High School Students

A Work-Based Course Blueprint for the Tennessee SySTEM Grant

At a Glance

The Work-Based Courses Blueprint is a foundational guide for all Tennessee SySTEM school sites engaged in designing and developing work-based courses for 11th and 12th grade students. Specifically, this blueprint covers pertinent work-based courses topics such as building a work-based course team, course design, and course delivery. The blueprint will evolve over time to capture best practices and lessons learned as school sites test this proven model to see if strong outcomes persist for students, with particular emphasis on supporting Black, Latinx, female, and/or students from low-income backgrounds in dual enrollment work-based courses.
