Career And Technical Education
Date/Time: Thursday, October 7, 2010 at 7 p.m. EDT/4 p.m. PDT
Presenter: Kathy Baron, features producer and research editor
Description: Students in Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs are less likely to drop out of high school and more likely to complete the classes required for college admission. CTE is revitalizing traditional vocational education by infusing a rigorous academic curriculum with job skills in specific occupations to prepare students for college and careers. The most successful CTE programs are built around a set of guiding principles and structures that focus on interdisciplinary, project-based learning. Our webinar panelists will share those tips for success, provide steps for starting a CTE program, and discuss the growing body of research on this growing trend in high school reform.
