2 Engage, Inspire, and Challenge: Rigorous CTE Curricula and Academic Integration By Jill Ranucci, Ph.D.

3 Catalina Foothills Demographics Number of students – Approx (increased CTE participation over 100%) Graduation Rate/Socioeconomics CTE & State Tests Challenge All students! Number of students – Approx (increased CTE participation over 100%) Graduation Rate/Socioeconomics CTE & State Tests Challenge All students!

4 CTE Programs of Study (POS) Include Academic Credit, Common Core & 21 st Century Skills 21st Century Skills – Scientific Inquiry Global competitiveness (partnerships) Accountability Technical skills assessments Dual credit opportunities

5 CFHS CTE includes engaging and differentiated instruction! Hands On/Authentic Experiences Build From Solid Foundation Accountability – evidence/supported claims PARCC type assessment Seamless transitions to post secondary or certification

6 STEM and CTE Programs of Study at CFHS Biosciences – Chemistry & Science Elective Agri-science – Biology, Chemistry, Physics-based 3 rd year science & AP Engineering – Science Elective Performing & Graphic Arts – Fine Arts Journalism – English Elective Rigor, Relevance

7 Questions To Consider 1. Why should rigorous CTE courses be integrated or embedded into the general curricula? 1. Consider impact on course selection if your CTE courses also offered academic credit 1. Why should rigorous CTE courses be integrated or embedded into the general curricula? 1. Consider impact on course selection if your CTE courses also offered academic credit

8 Questions To Consider / Does integrating common core into your CTE courses make sense? Consider the enduring possibilities.

9 Students Viewpoints / What is the added value for your student population of providing/integrating rigorous academics into your CTE curricula?

10 Students Viewpoints / How does CTE affect students career plans? / How can we guarantee a viable, career and college ready curriculum? / How does CTE affect students career plans? / How can we guarantee a viable, career and college ready curriculum?

11 Agriscience Course Sequence Environmental Biology (Biology) Environmental Chemistry (Chemistry) Environmental Science (3 rd year – physics based lab science) AP Environmental – (AP credit)

12 Engineering - PLTW Intro to Engineering Design (science elective) Principles of Engineering (science elective) Digital Electronics (science elective) Senior Engineering Capstone (U of A 3 Engineering Credits)

13 Bioscience Course Sequence Chemistry – Forensics (Chemistry Forensics – Biological and Chemical Applications (Science elective) Anatomy & Physiology (Science elective)

14 Advisory Boards/CTSOs/Certification Teachers, Industry leaders/businesses, Administrators, Students/Parents, Local Colleges and Universities Integrate and collaborate for students success Opportunities for internships, coop, and workplace experience Opportunities for industry certification and academic foundations to transition to post- secondary Strengthen with counselors (secondary & post- secondary) the transition to post-secondary education County wide advisory boards – advantages

15 Advantages of Academic Integration Advantages: Academic credit – Common Core Rigorous curriculum/assessment Cross-walked standards Collaboration between math, science, administration, counseling and CTE department Industry standard skill acquisition Post-secondary recognition/credit

16 AZ State Framework for Program of Study (POS) Legislation and policies Partnerships Professional Development Accountability and Evaluation Systems College/Career Readiness Standards Course Sequences Credit Transfer Agreements Guidance Counseling/Academic Advisement Teaching and Learning Strategies Technical Skills Assessments

17 Challenges Faculty - availability and preparedness Faculty - availability and preparedness Stipends/Professional development for curricular development and revision Stipends/Professional development for curricular development and revision Equipment/Supplies/ Equipment/Supplies/ Marketing programs to district and community Marketing programs to district and community Graduation restrictions Graduation restrictions
