Increasing Literacy in Career and Technical Education

An Ask the Experts webinar hosted by TASN provider KSSC & KSDE

Many Kansas schools are looking for ways to improve literacy skills of secondary students. Strategies like "double dosing" show mixed results, but there is another way to increase literacy instruction to meet Common Core State Standards without doubling English classes or taking struggling students out of their favorite classes.

Join the experts at High Schools that Work on Nov. 27th at 3:30pm to hear just how your school can increase literacy instruction by embedding it directly into career & technical education (CTE) courses. 

A strong CTE program is a great way to prevent dropout and improve post-secondary outcomes, but it can also help meet the needs of the Common Core and literacy.

Participants will:

  • Learn strategies to embed literacy instruction in CTE
  • See reliable techniques for reading
  • Examine the alignment among Common Core, tech ed standards, and 21st Century Skills
  • Discuss approaches to 2-way cooperation between teachers of literacy and career/tech courses for maximum support of struggling readers.

Who should log on? 

  • CTE teachers
  • Literacy, English, and reading teachers
  • (attend as a pair or a team to increase the training impact!)
  •  Counselors who enroll students in CTE courses
  •  Other school leaders concerned with improving graduation rates, post-school outcomes and literacy for students

How to log on:

Thank you for all you're doing to support student learning. See you on November 27th at 3:30pm!
