2 In This Session, We Will… 1. Highlight UC’s past involvement with CTE. 2. Share UC’s planned CTE goals. 3. Focus on the UC Curriculum Integration (UCCI) Institutes and developed courses. 4. Provide tools for developing new (or strengthening existing) CTE courses. 2

3 Share Out Please share with us:  What have been some of your roadblocks in developing or offering CTE courses?  How have you overcome these roadblocks? 3

4 The A-G Subject Requirements

5 Misconceptions of UC and CTE Some of the common misconceptions are:  UC does not approve CTE courses at all.  UC only approves CTE courses in the college-preparatory elective (“g”) subject area.  Identifying a course as CTE in a submission will decrease the chance a course will be approved. 5

6 UC and CTE: How Far We Have Come In 2001, UC had approved 258 CTE courses. By the end of 2010, UC had approved 9,979 CTE courses. GOAL: Approving 10,000 CTE courses by the end of 2012 6

7 UC and CTE Milestones 2003: ROPs granted program status and “a-g” course lists established. 2006: CIP Grants became available. 2008: CTE course criteria developed by UC Faculty. 2010: Inception of the UCCI Institutes. 7

11 UC’s Goals for the Future Approve more CTE courses in English, math and history. Approve a variety of “a-g” courses in all industry sectors. Continue to support the development of integrated CTE courses for “a-g” approval.  Provide professional development opportunities.  Create more tools and resources for teachers. 11


13 UCCI Institute WHAT: 4-day professional development opportunity administered by UC with support from CDE, CASN and CSMP. WHO: Teams of 8-10 CTE and academic high school educators from across the state. OUTCOME: Integrated CTE and “a-g” courses approved by UC. 13

14 How Can I Use UCCI Institute Courses? Adopting UCCI courses at your school site. Using UCCI courses as a model curriculum. Building pathways programs or academies around UCCI courses. UCCI courses available at: 14

23 Discontinuing CIP Grant Program…Why? Primary UC initiative to encourage CTE coursework. High cost to support a handful of teachers a year. UC provided a hands-off approach. Funds are now channeled to increase UCCI efforts. 23

24 The UCCI Project: Next Steps PHASE I: UCCI Institutes (2010- )  Integrated CTE and “a-g” course outlines. PHASE II: Quality Assessment Workshops (2013)  Best practices and quality instruction for UCCI courses.  Develop and share UCCI curriculum modules.  Recommendations for addressing Common Core Standards. 24


26 A-G Subject Area and CTE Course Criteria Each subject area has its own specific criteria covering:  The intent, goals and objectives of the requirement.  Course requirements and guidelines. All CTE courses must meet general CTE and subject- specific course criteria. Available on the “a-g” Guide in the Subject Requirements section at 26

27 CTE Course Criteria Provides a high-quality, challenging curricula that uses and advances concepts and skills in the “a-g” subject areas. Includes opportunities to develop knowledge of tools, processes and materials; to engage in problem- solving and decision-making; and to explain what one is doing and why. 27

28 CTE Course Criteria Integrates academic knowledge with technical and occupational knowledge. Connects closely with the academic curriculum and reads as both an academic and CTE course. Shows the integration of academic and technical concepts and skills in all aspects of the course. 28

29 Core Academic vs. Elective Subject Area Advantages of approval in the “a-f” subject areas:  Stronger academics.  Satisfies “a-f” subject requirement OR the elective (“g”) subject requirement.  Open to ninth and tenth graders. Advantages of approval in the “g” subject area:  Credentialed or certified to teach only in this subject area. Before submitting in a subject area, verify that your course meets that subject area’s course criteria. 29
