Math in CTE at CTC How/Who Auto Tech Was First
6 Years Ago Went through the State standards Expand Principal Degraff sends out an e-mail Almost 5 years now with Design & Interactive Media, Cosmetology, Construction Thought he did enough math to earn a math credit Adapt When we first started, students needed to pass the BST GRAD test came along Intervention Finally ahead of the curve Intervention We identified the math now what? 12 complete lesson plans from ?NRC CTE? Auto Instructor went to a convention in Las Vegas Embed math examples into the CTE Hands on examples Relate it to traditional math examples Computer Based
2x /week Integrated Curriculum E2020 A+dvancer Validation 4 Contextualized pre/post GRAD tests Expansion Perkins grant for math coach Include all programs Shift focus from GRAD intervention to

1 hr of homework '11-'12 Integrated Curriculum Packet or Computer Based
1 hr of homework Hybrid of GRAD and Accuplacer Test '10-'11 & '11-'12 Questions/Comments? How to Start? 2 Models Team Parallel Teach- Geometry in Construction Model. Benefits-Limited curriculum adjustments needed. Less administrative approval needed Math teacher reorders curriculum to fit topics covering in CTE class. CTE teacher reorders curriculum to fit topics covering in math class Drawbacks-
Need same students for two periods.
Need two teachers willing to change.
CTE & Math teacher in same building.
Limited longitudinal data on effects Integrated Core and CTE Teachers -
NRC-CTE Model. Math teacher works to enhance and integrate math that is already in the CTE program. Benefits- Data showing students learning gains when contextualizing core academics is extensive. Required by Perkins IV. Drawbacks -
Sneaking in the broccoli. Let's get Started!!!!! Went to some conferences and trainingsSee the full transcript
