TECHNIQUES D ECEMBER 2008 “A Vision for High Schools: Joining Academic and Technical Studies to Promote More Powerful Learning” “For the first time, federal law requires that CTE courses include essential academic skills.”
C ARL D. P ERKINS CTE A CT (T EACHER H ANDBOOK, PAGE 5) NC CTE Performance Indicators 1. By 2008-2009, 35.2% of CTE concentrators who left secondary education in the reporting year will have met the proficient or advanced level on the statewide high school reading/language arts NCLB assessment.
O BJECTIVES At the end of today’s workshop you will be able to: 1. Identify strategies that will help students become better readers and writers in CTE classes. 2. Prepare and model literacy strategies to use in your CTE classroom.
W HAT I S “L ITERACY ”? Webster defines “literate” as able to read or write; educated. Vicki Smith defined “literacy” as purposeful reading, writing, speaking, listening, or viewing.
W HY I S L ITERACY I MPORTANT I N C AREER AND T ECHNICAL E DUCATION ? To be literate in CTE classes, students must learn how to use language processes to explore and construct meaning with texts. When students put language to work for them in CTE classes, it helps them to discover, organize, retrieve, and elaborate on what they are learning.
W HOSE J OB I S I T ? To what extent must every CTE teacher be a reading teacher? Is literacy instruction just an “add-on” to the teaching of other skills and content? Are CTE teachers comfortable incorporating literacy skills into their curriculum? Are they prepared to do it? To what extent are they doing it already?
TECHNIQUES F EBRUARY 2009 “From No to Yes! A CTE Teacher’s Journey into Literacy Instruction” “I readily admit I thought literacy was the high school’s job. I already had enough to do. If I had to teach kids to read, then the high school needed to teach them how an engine works. Fair is fair, right?” Peter Gagnon
D O I R EALLY H AVE TO T EACH R EADING ? “I don’t know if teachers can work any harder than they’re already working, so we’ve got to find ways to make students carry more of the thinking load in our classrooms. As I walk out of school with my colleagues at the end of each day, we’re all tired. We’re carrying heavy bags of books and papers, and our shoulders are slumped. Meanwhile, our students bound past us to the parking lot, running and jumping down the steps two at a time, full of energy. I once heard someone say, “School should not be a place where young people go to watch old people work.” We’ve got to figure out how to work smarter, because what we’re being asked to do is really a challenge.

T EXTBOOKS “Like it or not, textbooks are here to stay. Even as technology changes the nature of nonfiction reading into a multi- sensory, multi-text experience, the textbook—that single, hardbound, seemingly complete container of a year’s worth of content—remains a constant. Even if we choose to reject textbooks completely—cast them aside as biased, poorly written, or de-motivating—it turns out that we would be doing our students a disservice in preparing them for college, where the first-year student is asked to read, on average, 80 pages per class per week, with most of the load coming from textbooks.” Chris Tovani
